Good theory, but do you think I'd post UP photos if that were true?

There's a pretty good "exception to the rules" as the current POTW. Unlevel and foreground clutter. Excellent picture, but for the life of me, I can't imagine how the unlevel nature of it got by the screener. However, it's definitely one of those compositions where foreground clutter can be overlooked by a VERY strong composition.

Well Jim, you're the forum levelling expert, but that shot looks plenty level to me. Keep in mind there are plenty of unlevel things that may throw the viewer off kilter like the slight sag of the dock and those posts to the left. But if you get in real close, you'll see the building is perfectly level, and the train's level too.

The train looks like it's going up hill, the building looks like it's leaning to the left...in fact, the whole image looks like it's rotated to the left.

Regardless...great shot.
