First: sorry I said 35 degrees: it was 17 (lol).
Since I am a ship-nut and not an arty-farty type, I have been playing around with your photo on Photoshop and straightened it up. Maybe its just me, but I think it looks better from a realistic, level-horizon view than from your 'slanted' one.
I did some aerial stuff once - off Dover - but couldn't help but lean the other way when the 'plane banked. Guess I am that kind of 'straight' guy!

We'll leave the list for the present, but the "level horizon" thing is not always the right thing for aerial shots from my experience. I normally try to get rid of the horizon as it quite often ruins the end result when you level it off........... Now from ground (sea?) level, that's a different thing altogether. BTW, if they want to chuck it, I don't give a rat's either way. I'm not one to take my bat and ball and head off in a sulk!!

What I meant was that it will be interesting to see what Admins do with it when they will ditch one for being 2 degrees off! I was being perhaps a little sarcastic but not about you or your photos!
Anyway, I've never had a card from you so see if I care about my deletion from your list! lol

Thanks Bob, but you're now off my Christmas card list. The camera was level with me, we were 30 degrees (at least) off level........

Nice pic but horizon is about 35 degrees off level. Admins????
