I'm hoping "horizon" can be interpreted as other than a landscape shot... This is the upper lobby of the Ricardo Montalban Theater where I am rehearsing. I thought the wallpaper was awesome (the exterior of the building is painted to look just like it!), and there is this graffiti-by-design all around the room. I added the tilted border to enhance the "tilted" effect - which will likely bug some folks...

Auto levels, lighting levels, a bit of contrast, border.

The border is the most interesting thing here. At first it looks overdone and out of place, and then slowly it becomes obvious it isn't straight and almost becomes another subject. I've seen graffiti before, but not a tilted border like this. Respect.

Interesting picture, very strange wallpaper. I'm not so sure about the tilted border.

Interesting use of the tilted frame too. I haven't seen that before but what fun to play around with it. Your subject matter probably won't win you any ribbons but nice creativity.

I like the crooked border. It adds to the picture a lot.
