Cal - those were very kind words, and I thank you for that. One reason that the horizon may look deceivingly askew, in additon to those which you pointed out, is the fact that this was taken with a 17-40 wide angle. This new Canon lens is really crisp - at most f-stops, and at most zoom levels. I applied no USM or other sharpening to this image, but I probably should have done so. The light was quite low, and I shot wide open, with a relatively low shutter speed. I think that if you look at the nearby objects, and the objects in the distance, that there is an acceptable level of sharpeness across the entire range of the photo. Thanks again, Cal.
