Looks good to me Mr. Shaw! Troy - CCW about a degree-ish? It's on a grade, but it's not that steep

I took a look at it, cracked another beer, and I *think* it needs to go CCW by a gnat's nut hair. Very close to perfect though.

That's a definite rejection.. B52's are larger than that..

Bravo!

For a while now I've been thinking about making an avatar somewhat like that.

If there's anything I've learned here from you fine folks...is that this ought to be the fix you're looking for.

Take your first reject and rotate it counterclockwise. Maybe 0.75 - 1 degree.

Unless, of course, you're set on correcting the distortion by now.

By the sixth reject, the crew must be ducking because they're about to hit the top of the frame. The first reject looks better to me, cropping and horizon.

I would personally go back to the first reject and make a very tiny CW adjustment.

As to the two you posted to show unlevels that got in, the BNSF, maybe, slightly, maybe, but looks okay to me. The one from Chile looks right to me.

The chile one, look at the building pillars, and fenceposts, all heavily leaning right, but whatever, it's about my shot, not theirs. Want to get this thing "right"
