    The saturation is a tad high, but good balance of the sky and buildings.
    edit: good balance of the lighting on the buildings and sky. the composition is your choice, i actually like a lot of sky.

    guess I gotta check that.

    Is it worth keeping after I straighten that shit out?

    I think the saturation looks fine and the "pelf" is incredibly minimal, if at all.

    maybe a beginner question, but have they ever had a camera with a built in level? or even a tripod with one...seems like "pelfing" a shot is pretty common with landscapes

    thanks!

    I work right across the street from Liberty 2...

    Yeah, they do have tripods with levels, and you can buy something that mounts on your hotshoe with a level too..

    I'm not convinced that this shot is pelfed. But i'm too lazy to check tonight...

    Here's a shot exactly like you're describing, with the Ben and all...

    My post work is shit though, I gotta fix that...

    The D3 has an electronic level on the screen. But most cameras don't have anything like that. It's easy enough to fix in post though.

    Also most good tripods and/or clamps have levels. Here's mine...the two yellow circles are the levels.
