Photographers, help me out with this one!

Postby mountaineer » Sat Oct 12, 2013 3:42 pm

I took this on Thursday morning after the storm blew through. It looks like the image is slanting when taking the shoreline into account. Is it really slanting or does it just look like it is due to the right edge of the shore line being closer to the viewer? Thanks for your help on this.

Edit: Thanks to help from Maverick, I straightened the image. The top one is the straightened image and the bottom one is the original.

If you hadn't mentioned it, I wouldn't have noticed anything. Now that the idea is in my head, it maybe looks a little slanted.

Thanks! LOL! You have helped me immensely. I just won't say anything then. :)

I have that problem at times where a slant whether real or an illusion is a distraction in the over all composition. I often just tilt the image enough to remove the problem.

The problem is, I don't know how to tilt it. I have ACDSee 4.0 and PS Elements 2.0.

It's not crooked! Don't mess with it! It's a great photo; order a print and step away from your computer before you mess it up!

Honestly that photo I do not see a problem with it. It's great. I don't know how to do it without a program that does all these things. I have been using lightroom for along time now.

Thank you! I WOULD mess it up because once the image is off the camera I have no idea what I am doing! I know how to resize and sharpen a little bit and that is it.

Thank you. You are an encouragement. I was told once that I have one ear lower than the other, maybe that is messing up my leveling ability with my eyes. :)

Hi Mountaineer,

Yes, it is very slightly off tilt. PM sent.
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member: http://reconn.org
