Challenge: Tilted Horizon (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6
Date: Feb 16, 2009
Galleries: Landscape, Nature
Date Uploaded: Feb 16, 2009

I don't have all the exif handy at the moment but my original idea of a take on the challenge would be to photograph something tilted, and tilt the shot to make it look straight. I have some outtakes which I liked a lot as well (shall post) but liked this one for the story.

~~~

Thanks for the kind comments. Sort of a tricky shot to take and edit. Getting enough light on the feather but not blowing out the sky. Could've used some fill flash? Due to shadow/highlights adjustment to brighten the feather some slight banding was introduced in the sky *shrug*

Outtakes:

Just posting, as the shore line almost got me and I twitched a bit. doh.

AHHH so awesome. I love the textures, colours, and the tilted horizon really adds to the composition. Perfect timing and DOF too.

Nicely done and good finish too Techo. Beautiful color and texture. Seems this was one of the few images in the challenge that had a bit of a reason to be tilted too.

the out of focus birds really help this shot. I don't think I would've stopped to take a picture of that feather. I'll think again after seeing this. so much stronger than the cliche sunsets we see here.
