Rejected For Level. Really?

Thu Jan 17, 2008 1:19 pm

Photo was rejected for 'LEVEL' personal message said need some CW rotation.
How come it needs CW rotation?? Photo was taken at Lusaka Airport in Zambia, the ground there is not so level. Just look at the background you see that the ground is not level. Looking at the trees in the background it seem perfectly level to me. Or am I wrong? I just don't get it anymore, if it's not LEVEL then it would be something else. Would the viewer even care one little bit that the photo may be 0.1% of level? Looking at the trees the photo is perfectly level!!

Sorry guys just a bit of frustration.

Well, just give it some CW rotation and re-submit it. No big deal.  Yeah sure

You're right; there's clearly an upward curve from left to right in the horizon - but don't forget that it's not awlays black-and-white, and sometimes we must use judgement to make the image 'look' level - even if in fact it turns out not to be.

I'm afraid this shot doesn't 'feel' level, and therefore it will be classified as unlevel.

I levelled CW by 1.0! I used the masts in the background as a reference.I also brightened the shot slightly and came up with this:

Thanks guys and thanks Andy.

I can understand that the modified image might seem beter level. But for me it looks wierd, being at the airport the runway is at a slope. But if rotating the earth will get it accepted then I would just need to do that.  Smile

Cheers!

Steven.

Hi Steven

With all due respect there is no way your image is level, every single indicatror point to ccw rotation and andy's version is much better.

Just reupload with the corrections, it's a rare image but even those need to be level.
