Beautiful looking silky smooth sky and very eye pleasing overall colour of the sky and the sea below, as if you used a very decent filterI even liked the sunshineon the railing though I do not favour such artifacts in an image. Still a little cropping off from the bottom, enough to preserve the essential(untill the first intersection of the horizontal and the vertical bars on the left handside, let's say),might be useful, IMO.

Great shot, absolutely beautoful colours. My only niggle is the tilted horizon, easilly fixed though!

I don't think that we may know if the horizon is tilted or not unless we don't see the sea on horizon. If the shore is approaching through us in the right side of the image than the land-water intersection line may not be horizontal.
On the other hand, if the posts on the railing are vertical in reality, longside1 seems right than for that image.

BTW, Barbarian I liked the tones and the silky effect as Bahadir says.

eu is right. The shoreline is not paralell with the horizon, but the ship's rail is. My perspective of that rail, is of course skewed. But use a slide or other right angle to check the angle of the posts and bottom of the image.

Right angles.

Because I was there in three dimensions, nothing seems skewed to me, but I can see how it mightseem so, because of the rather deceptive shoreline.

please forgive my ignorance on this one but i'm slightly confused as to how the situation can occur whereby the line where the sea and land meet can appear tilted, without this being a result of the image being skewed?

I'm not spoiling for a big debate i'm just naturally interested! :-)

Using the image in this thread as example....if the land mass is closer to the observer on the right side of the image than it is on the left, perspective will angle the intersection of land and sea downward, to the right.

To consider the extreme of this....imagine you are standing at the edge of a perfectly straight shoreline, and are looking directly parallel to the shoreline....the line formed by the land/sea interface will be vertical.

Hope this helps.

While it's true that we can't always go by the opposite shore line for a level guide, you should be able to use the reflection of the light on the water to get a close level, the two sides should be roughly parallel and coming straight at the shooter. You can sometimes also use the base cloud layer to get close, but there doesn't seem to be a good base in this pisture. This one does seem to be slightly tilted. That said, level or not, it's a nice shot!
For an example only, one of my shots with a moon reflection coming at you.

Question for Barbarian, is that a little boat near the reflection or a bouy?
