Sweet shots. You might want to take a look at the horizons as to me they all slope down to the right (or maybe as I've just got up my horizontal axis hasn't kicked in yet) !

You are correct, I was using the level in the camera, I must be pulling the shutter release side down slightly when releasing. Will change photos, let me know how I did.

Nothing to quibble about now Ed. I use the top of the web-page as a ruler and they are all within a fraction.

Or maybe it is off - some K5's seem to have a problem with this . My K7 was spot on, I have one K5 that is miles off and the other is very close to the K7s but still not perfect - I don't use them now.
