Great spence 2004-06-30 1:13

Beautiful light on the paddock Ray, and a great sky. This would be a nice shot even without the rainbow. I do find the tilted horizon a bit distracting though.

Default To spence: Tilted horizon

Thanks for your comments, Jennifer! LOL actually the horizon seems sloped, but that is becaus the land actually slopes down from left to right at this place. There was a distracting and rather bland tree on the right in the original shot which would have proved the point, but it spoiled the image so I cropped it out in camera for this shot.

Regards
Ray

Ray,
Horizontal horizons are only gospel when you have water on the horizon, no where else is it called for! It may help, improve or enhance to have a levell hriz, but mountains, veld and bush are not flat! So, as is presented, this is just right!

Hi Callie

Couldn't agree with you more, ou maat! I am a firm believer that with photography breaking the "rules" is often essential, otherwise we'd all end up taking similar shots. Of course in this case the actual horizon IS level hehehe, shown also by the haze line just above the line of the land.

Rules are good, but they must not become dogma, because then creativity suffers.

Best wishes
Ray
