    Question Level advice

    Hi,

    Was going through some airshow photos and was struggling with getting these level. In one I have levelled it with the horizon, in the other with the taxiway. From my understanding of the area there is some slope in the ground, and levelling it with the horizon seems to produce an unnatural result in my eyes. What do you think?

    I would go with the second one. Seems more natural, and the 'horizon' that's visible isn't really far enough away to be a reliable indicator imho.
