By maybe a degree at most, the ruler in photoshop shows all the buildings in the center to be level. Im sure Jim fixed that in his edit if it was slightly unlevel.

As for the exposure, Jim's does look better. I would be interested in fielding advice how people deal with editing on laptop screens, the angle of the screen can really effect how the photo looks.

Didn't bother with leveling it. It was simply an exercise showing that you did in fact capture a well-lit scene. :)

I do all my stuff on a laptop. The screen angle is something to always be consciously aware of, to move one's head up and down and see what is going on. It helps to take a look at a known picture - an accepted one - to be sure one is at the right angle. But I find generally, maybe because of the # years I have been doing it, that I can figure out the right angle pretty easily.

Wow, this thread is completely nuts. The lighting in Nikos' shot is the definition of sweet evening light. Look at the city buildings in the background; there isn't a shadow on them and the color is great. I can't believe anybody is protesting that. As was mentioned earlier, the only 'problem' with the light is the shadows on the engine's broadside.
