Random shot from yesterday when I was tooling around getting used to the battery grip...
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.
needs less sky and less pelf.
what does 'pelf' mean?
pelf = shot at a mild angle
your horizon doesnt seem straight.
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.
Walnut St bridge?
South Street Bridge, by UPenn.
the 2nd building in on the left side(twin buildings) is my work
but cool shot, i like the skyline from this angle the best, althought i've seen some cool shots done from camden waterfront with the BFB in there as well
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
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.
