A "level" Rejection

Fri Sep 15, 2006 3:24 am

I've just had this rejected for level.
I used the brick building on the right as my vertical guide. Any advice greatly appreciated.

Would say it needs some cw, the verticals towards the left are leaning. It's a little hot as well.

I agree with Tim.

I myself almost never level using verticals on the right or left, only in the middle (if possible). Many lenses have got distortions, usually the cheap ones...

Needs rotating clockwise slightly. However, I would say the main problem is the white fuselage which is 'blown' and lacks any detail, not the levelling.

"Level" was the only reason given.

No, but if you use a 5D, AFAIK, it will produce pretty much distortions, among vignetting...

I'd go a little easier on the sharpening on this shot. Rework from original, with note of the level and the jaggies apprearing in many parts of the shot.

Little less processing and should be ok.

Phil.

I agree with comments above. The screeners may look at those wheels as well - with the right set (as we look) quite a lot higher than the left. I think they need to be more level, unless that throws the background completely off. That fuselage is overexposed and I would be a bit shocked if that was not a problem in a reupload. Also the current edit has notable jaggies along the edge of the horizontal stabiliser. Could there even be a bit if evidence of heat haze?

Apologies for 'dissing' the shot (as my daughter would say) - I think it would need to look different to get through.

All the best.

Thanks all. I did try to level as Paul suggested with the wheels, but the buildings went way out.
I will have another go at it bearing in mind all the good advice given

Very good! Then there should be very little distortions... Big grin
