Level Or Not

Sun Jul 09, 2006 10:59 pm

is it or isn't it? i've used the middle light pole just behind the winglet and the verticals just by the black 52 sign on top of the aerobridge...it comes up as level in the grid...rejected for horizon though. also used the white pole holding the aerobridge up as reference.

Stupid question maybe, but why not use the horizon itself?

Quoting QANTAS077 (Thread starter):

On first glance, no. It appears to lean to the left. Nice photo though.

I'd treat the tarmac line below the Malaysian a/c as horizontal.

Wietse, the upload guidelines advise to use verticals... maybe that's why.

Sure, they can advise whatever they want, but if you can clearly see that the photo is not level when using verticals, I dont see why you should listen to them. Use the horizon, it will level it out just nicely.
