Default horizon unlevel

I have not a clue what they want. tracks parallel to the photo frame? then the building is unlevel.

Let's see. Pull up the lower right and push down on the upper left and see how that works for you. Hmmm... you got me.

a) I have no idea, but it looks wrong.

b) I've gone around with this in my mind a few times, and also compared to the Suydam show I referred to last time.

The whole thing is so complex - in a way unlike his, which has a solitary building as a focal element - that I think the best thing is simply to make the tracks, the bottom-most rail, horizontal.

c) I have no idea!

d) the color looks terrible, light blue cast everywhere

Make the "horizontal" tracks level. See Nick's photo above for reference. And I agree with J, the color is really off.

Thanks all for the advice... I made the tracks horizontal. My first submission was more along Chris' idea. I emphasized the "dizziness" of the photo by making nothing in the photo level. They didn't like that.

Good call on the blue tint. I'm not sure how that happened. Wasn't in the original.
