Post Screening - Level

Sat Oct 06, 2012 9:31 am

This photo of mine was rejected for Level
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...1347694467.8024img_6373_edit-2.jpg

With the Screener remarks being: "needs CW rotation"

Well the photo is actually already Unlevel CCW, if the Screener(s) are referring the fence on the right then thats nothing but a bent wired fence.

You can see a construction crane below the Left Wing which looks slightly bent towards the right.

CW rotation rotation still? With what referance?

Thanks - Vishal

It feels like it needs CW to me as well.

Personally, I would use the approximate horizon; basically where the trees meet the ground. You can see it on the right side, but you kind of have to estimate it on the left side. I gave it 0.5 degrees CW based on this, and it looks better to me.

I remember commenting on this shot when you first posted it for pre-screening and we did mention it was unlevel at the time. The photo needs quite a bit of CW rotation. I agree with vikkyvik that is needs something around 0.5 degree, maybe slightly more.

Personally, I would level using the wingtips. It's almost head-on and that has worked for me in the past with such shots like 95% of the time

Quoting vishaljo (Reply 5):
rotated CW & added light sharpening - better?

It looks better, but I still think it needs a littler more CW looking at the buildings in the background.

I finally for the Levelling right & guess what:

Reject reason: Quality | Grainy | Soft
Screener Comments: "image looks like its suffering from heat haze. Sorry Vishal

Both of its last 2 rejections were mainly for Level & Soft

Is this worthy of an appeal?

Don't think so. The softness is caused by heat haze, which probably isn't fixable.
