p.1 #1 · Inside Passage Alaska


Purely magical area just south of Glacier Bay Alaska.

I have debated myself to level the shoreline or not with the frame; let me know your thoughts as I plan to have it printed soon for the wall of memories.

Thanks,
Scott

Beautiful image, Scott. No need to level that line. The left side is further away from the viewer and it looks right. It is not a horizon!

I agree with Jeffrey on the level of the shoreline.
Lovely shot, Scott. It looks like that thick clouds is coming down to embrace the mountain ridge.

Hi Scott,

What a cool view. That must have been a really great trip.

Nice shot.

I agree with the others. I've seen shorelines that were not level that looked like they should be. I kept wanting to adjust them. This one, however, seems fine to me. The visual clues support the angle rather than fighting it.

I have been on that cruise twice or maybe three times, but all long ago. Beautiful place.

great shot as is. But it wouldn't hurt to "level" the shoreline and compare them side by side.

I like this shot a lot. Look at the reflection lines on the water which look vertical to me. If you rotate it, they will no longer look correct.

I actually did it just to see. I found out that i like the "rotated' one better. it looked straight up and one doesn't feel the need to tilt one's head to look at it as is the case with the original version.Try it you might change your opinion.

Great shot!
I love the light on the top of the snowy mountains.
My suggestion would be to definitely level the shoreline. Even though it's not a horizon line, my eyes keep telling me that the image is crooked. I would also crop the image at the bottom just a tad.
Best,
Fred

Thanks for the feedback. As suggested, I added a second image with straightened shoreline and slight crop; I still keep flip flopping which one I like the best. Nice thing is when I get the print and frame it I'll be able to adjust slightly as I mount it. Regardless, I still have the same fond "happy place" memory of the cool arctic breeze blowing though my hair as I was in awe of the beauty!

Way to go. But as I see it you will like the "corrected" option better. I bet because they, the photogs, conditioned me so well about the "horizon"

Another vote for the level shoreline.

Beautiful photo. Both versions look "right" but to my eye, the original has more depth. My eye travels into the picture. Version 2 is more static, possibly because you had to crop the right side to straighten the shoreline.

I agree with Jeffrey, I think leveling the shoreline takes out the distance perspective. Beautiful image!
