Is is my eyes, or is the horizon tilted slightly left?

@ Walter…I wasn't aware that a perfectly level horizon was included in the challenge, maybe you read it closer than I did, I will have to check on that…

Very nice photography there JJ, I really like the B/W, and I suspect the tilted horizon could be from the waves cresting on the right so it lends a sense of reality to the overall scene. I like it a lot! I am especially astounded that you found all this water in Ohio, must have rained some up there.
Peace buddy!

Very nice. Horizons in motion and old piers that may or may not be level confuse me often unless I put a grid on the photo. Even then I have left them alone because when I straightened them, they did not look right. I get particularly frustrated when a bank on the other side of a body of water either projects closer to me or further way in the frame and makes everything look out of kilter.

Very good point Bill, and one I agree with wholeheartedly.
