Default Calling Jim Thias (or other Levelers)

Alright everyone - I need to know by how many pubic hairs this needs to be adjusted and in which direction.

Thanks!

I actually think you need to go slightly CCW.

Lol!

Jon - I think your shot is level but at first glance it looked like it was a pube or two tilted CW. Sometimes it's not whether or not it IS level but whether or not it looks level. This makes things difficult as shots that look level one day can look unlevel the next, and then level again. In other words, same screener, same pic, could likely get accepted just by uploading on a different day...

I'd appeal - state the RR crossing structures being level and perpendicular to the ground. Otherwise, make a concession and tip two pubes CCW.

Yes, so that the crossbuck pole on the left is more upright - very close now, but leaning slightly to the right.

Do I take that to mean it's level?

Going off the one or two 'true' objects in the scene, I call it level enough. The lighting isn't helping the pepsi can though.

They shoulda hit that one for cropping, although that is one of the best NS images I have seen to date.

It actually looks like a professional promo shot, instead of something they got from some 13 year old former.
