Re: Stunning Sunset

I agree on the sunset but can't quite make my mind up about the tilt? I expect it's shot on a hill though?

Re: Stunning Sunset

Great sunset but think it would be better with the tilt removed.

Re: Stunning Sunset

Just to put the other view, I'm OK with the tilt and I think it's a dramatic looking shot Paul.
Clouds are a good indication of the natural horizon, if the image were rotated to me the cloud formation would not look quite right.

Re: Stunning Sunset

Surely the 'tilt' is the lie of the land; remove that and the house will look like it is falling over? The house and its chimney looks vertical to me.
It really is a stunning sky and I like the shot very much - I wish I had taken it :-)

Re: Stunning Sunset

Yes, the tilt is the lie of the land. I always use the horizon bar to get the shot straight at time of shooting.

Re: Stunning Sunset

Thought so. It's just one of those shots that causes me to want it tipped over to have the ground level when it shouldn't be.
