Default Horizon Issues...

Two horizon unlevels that I can't figure out what to do with...Hoping to get some advice...


I don't know where to go with this, seeing as I lined it up with the radio tower on the left, cause the head end is in a banked curve.

The second one neeeds a little CW rotation judging by the train itself. Go back to the first one and give it anthother look, but go by the trains cars instead, either the GT box car or the brown one behind it. I believe this shot needs a little CW rotation as well.

On the first one, the tower in the background appears to be leaning slightly to the left. Give it about .7 CW rotation and you should be good to go.

Thanks for the advice, but it seems like they just refuse to take the NS one. Once I corrected the horizon, they gave me "Oversharpening", when I went in and fixed that, they gave me "Bad Color". So I think I gotta give up on it...

Why give up? Those are all fixable issues.

Yes.

The second one needs to go CCW until the supports on the tower are parallel to the side of the frame.

And as Joe states "why give up, those are all fixable."

It happens to us also.

All the time, it seems like, especially on certain shots.

Well, the NS one just got rejected for the 6th time, this time for overexposure. If y'all think there's something there, I'll keep trying, but when do you guys usually throw in the towel on a shot?
