Post Screen - Level

Hi all,

I had this one rejected this morning for Level, for the second time. It needs More CCW Rotation, and I am using the white house as my reference. I have had a lot of PDX shots rejected for level to. What should I be using a reference for making the photo level?

Thanks!

I would say it is level. The vertical line of the white house in the middle of the photo is exactly level so I would now know what's wrong with is. The far edge of the lake is not level but I don't think that is a good reference. So maybe appeal?

Hi,

All I could see is I do believe your photo is level, but because the lakes edge is sloping to the right it makes it look likes it needs to have CCW rotation.

I would level the shot off the lakes near edge or appeal the photo.

Hope this helps!

Definitely needs CCW to me - the water is sloping down to the right. Even the roof line of the house is not level.

Why would you level the photo off of a lake edge that is very likely not exactly perpendicular to the line of sight?

That said, I do believe the photo needs a bit of CCW. Even the verticals on the white house look very slightly tilted to the right to me.

Thanks for responding all, I'll do an edit when I get home tonight.
It's not a lake either, its the Columbia River.

As it is related, I didn't want to start a new thread. I got a tricky one as well. What would you do with this one? What would be your reference? I used the tires but there are a lot of elements I couldn't be sure.

Huh?

You already have your own threads. I'd suggest posting it in one of those.

I thought it would be worth a shot at trying and seeing how it looked. I mean what else is there to use that would be exactly perpendicular to the photographer?
