Jools Elliott Posted May 20, 2014 Share Posted May 20, 2014 Morning all Yes, a strange subject but it's being asked because of a recent competition I entered. At the end of last year I entered the International Garden Photographer of the Year competition. At first, i didn't think I had got anywhere but I received some feedback on my images. Apparently, I was one of a rare minority of entrantes that had several images shortlisted. That was nice to hear. However, one of the comments was that they said a particular image wasn't quite level. I always use a tripod; hotshoe spirit level plus the one embedded in the tripod. before I take any image I always make sure it's level. The image has no definable horizon, i.e. it's in the countryside and the foreground is made up of vineyards and the background has a treeline. The foreground wouldn't give any indication and the treeline is on a rolling hill which wouldn't give an indication either. So how do I determine what they are looking at for future reference? How level is my level? It would be useful for my work going forward but it's bugging me in any case. Oh, I do have the new version of Lightroom that apparently will level an image but experience has taught me that this isn't always perfect. I did go back to them and asked how they determined it wasn't level but they haven't responded. Any thoughts? Thanks Jools Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
