Another Level Rejection

Thu Mar 15, 2007 5:50 am

Hi all,

Had this photo rejected for 'level':

http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...main?filename=20070314_ab05061.jpg

As there was no reliable verticals, I used the edge of the airfield. Looking at it again, it might need some CCW rotation. But I don't know how much. What should I use as reference?

Any input would be much appreciated.

Cheers,
Andrei

Yes, it needs some CCW rotation. Would not know how much...For sure, less than 1 degrees...Take the filed of grass as a reference (you do not have any vertical). Very nice shot.

Ciao

Beyond the dry grass and the cars, there's a lush grass horizon just visible on the extreme left, and also a bit farther to the right. I'd try to use that.

Nice picture.

That's what I used.

I'll try...

Nice picture.

That's the nice ones that usually don't make it  Sad .

Thanks for the replies, guys.

Tried. Ended up rotating in the wrong direction  Sad ... The thing is, it's a hilly terrain, the hills are pretty flat, and when there are no verticals, it's just a lot of guesswork.

I used the dry grass horizon originally, the shot got rejected. The front edge of it is the taxiway, it is not level either.

I think the shot got rejected because the group of bystanders seems to be leaning to the right. On the original size version it's apparent, that the woman in the middle is leaning on the guy on the left, and he is sort of bracing himself against her. Not a reliable reference, either.

The fact is, I do like the shot but I have no idea how to fix the 'level'.

It would be nice to hear from the screener who rejected it, how much he thinks it should be rotated...

Cheers,
Andrei

You are right.

The Tiger's wing struts are not vertical, but since they are regular, could they be used in relation to each other, assuming the plane is level?

Left rear strut is slanted about 1.8 deg CCW according to my measurement (use the original for a better one), right rear strut about 3 deg CCW. Difference: 1.2 deg, required rotation: 0.6 deg CCW??!

I'm not at all sure this method is actually correct, but the result doesn't look too bad in my eyes.

Thanks, Peter. It might be a good idea, I'll try it.
