### Need Advice On Where To Level.

Hey guys, first off, this forum has been VERY productive the last day or so. I love to see it! Anyway, I just had this one rejected for angle, the screener left a note saying it needed CCW. I thought it looked a little off but was unsure what to align to. I was afraid to align on the lightpoles as we all know, they aren't all perfectly 90 degrees to the ground. So, where do I line this one up?

Thanks!

It's a difficult one, I think you should try to level the poles. You can do this with the measure tool in photoshop, drwa a line over one of the poles. Than go to rotate canvas arbitrary. The degrees to turn ar allready filled in by the measure tool.

it needs a little counter clockwise rotation, maybe as little as 0.25-0.40

it seems to be leaning to the right.

Hi again Danny.

Very nice photo. I think there is no reliable reference, though the combination of all those small verticals in the background does leave the viewer with a feeling that CCW rotation is needed.

I had a play and tried a few possibilities - 0.38, 0.55 and 0.76 degrees. It was the latter that produced the right result to my eye. With that rotation everything looked just right.

All the best.

I tried some rotations to. Just did it with several objects in the background.

I created a layer, changed my levels to very bright and searched for good objects that should be level.

Results were pretty much the same, between 0.62 - 0.68 CCW rotation.

Good luck with the great shot!

Use the light poles just to the left of the starboard main. I also did it with the wing tips and it looked good.
