  • Reject - unlevel when there is no unlevel so need help

    I got a rejection due to unlevel for this image
    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject_b.php?id=5508852
    Because I was absolutely sure that the photo is leveled I appealed. In the appeal I explaned that the level is ok because horizontal lines leveled. The appeal was rejected with a remark "verticals are leaning to the left". This is true. But at the same time the horizon leveled. Vertical lines (right corner) leaning to the left because the photo was taken at the wide end of the focal length range. And vertical lines (left corner) leaning to the right (the same reason) You can not see this part as it was deleted after crop. So "leaning vertical lines to the left" doesn't mean unleveled horizon.


    Take a look at this photo:
    http://www.jetphotos.net/photo/8400686
    Absolutely the same effect as in my photo vertical lines (right corner) leaning to the left. And it's normal as it is wide angle shot (even wide then mine) too. At the same time vertical lines (left corner) very close to normal vertical position just little leaning to the right.
    and this photo:

    All buildings leaning to the center (the same effect like in my photo)
    And this:

    And this:

    All photos have no problem with the horizon but have "vertical lines not vertical" because wide angle.

    If I correct vertical lines I will got unleveled horizon and wrong airplane proportions. So I need an advise what should I do? Is it normal to fix the problem what doesn't really exist?

    In all of the images you link to, the verticals are leaning equally towards the center on both the right and left sides, which yes, is to be an expected result of barrel distortion at very wide angle lenses. In your rejected image, only the right side is leaning. Those on the left are either straight up, or also leaning a little left; therefore clockwise rotation is indeed necessary.
