I am thinking of doing a thesis on the issue of leveling at A.net - it could be quite interesting!
I know exactly what you mean about a photo appearing to be level by all accounts using things like a grid reference in PS
. I have been there many times, and leveling shots at MAN
can be the proverbial pain in the **se. Even though this may look just right in PS
when you look at the photo there is no doubt that it looks in need of CW
rotation. This is based on what you correctly identify as the right references - building verticals.
I have had a quick play and rotated the image by 0.3 degrees - a trivial amount I hear many say - but you cannot escape the fact it makes the tower building now look more level. Now if you go in PS
this will still appear okay by those grid references.
What this has taught me is that the editing references are not enough - you then have to stand back and ask yourself the question - 'does it look right'? For me - despite a measly 0.3 degrees change - this image looks more level than your original.
No doubt A.net must be responsible for a great increase in the number of diagnoses for obsessive compulsive disorder
All the best.
