Default Unlevel Horizon - Wide Angle Lens

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=184351829

I need other sets of eyes for this one. Obviously, there's a lot of curvature due to using a wide-angle lens, but is there an obvious tilt?

IMO, I don't think that you have enough curvature to warrant it as a wide angle photo. With that said, I have noticed the screeners cracking down on not correcting perspective issues with an unlevel rejection in the last year or 2.

Agreed. Start with fixing that wide angle distortion!

I worked out the distortion, but I'm being hit for two different things:

Sharpening isn't an issue, but I'm not sure about the exposure. I don't want to lose the detail in the building.

Thanks for the help so far.

May I suggest doing something like this, and then give it a try.

I like what you did, Chris. Exactly what did you change?

Chris hit it on the head. I was going to say its underexposed due to lack of detail on the steam engine. I like what he did

In the end, I sharpened the image and reduced the contrast. Thanks for the help, everyone!
