photoblog image The seclusion at sea

The seclusion at sea

Theme: By the seaside

Thanks to everyone for their comments yesterday, the feedback was encouraging. I think I will try yesterdays image in monchrome and see what comes up.

Another one of my seaside images, todays is more art and I think it would look nice printed and on a wall (well I think). Yes I know the horizon isn't straight, I am not very good at it while I am shooting, I know I should pay more attention. Anybody know how to correct in photoshop?

getting used to your procesed skies...and loving it
sk: thanx Abi, welcome back to the UK
You can straighten by using the crop tool and rotating the bounding box by eyeballing it when its straight or you can use the measure tool and snap a line along the horizon then go to image-rotate-arbitrary then crop it to size.

I like this on it is simple and pleasing.
sk: thanx Laurie, that was helpful
Hi! It's very simple to correct your horizon line: go into 'image' on your tool bar, select 'rotate canvas', choose 'arbitrary', try 1 degree ccw & then use the 'crop' tool to square the image again.
cool shot, by the waysmile
sk: thanx Dave, also very useful, i will try it

Simple and beautiful Ade.

I'm going to contradict the comments of some of the others! Most of what you see on the hirizon is lens distortion caused by your 18 mm setting at the time of capture. I hate cropping images so, go to select all - Edit - transform - skew and then drag the little box in the bottom left corner down till the horizon is level.

However, if you look at most of my sea shots, I don't bother, it generally does not worry me at all. Mal
sk: thanx Mal, I will likely use ur suggestion, probably cos I understand it a bit more

i really like the tilt actually...gives me the feeling that everything is weighed down towards the pier...however i dont like the slight vignette along the right hand side..
Ade, calls much to me the attention the powerful sky that there is in this image, has many posibiliades for the later treatment. As far as the horizon, you can make level it, for example, with “Picasa” very simple to use.
beautiful tone and sky...
