Sometimes it is hard to decide which line it is most important to make completely vertical or horizontal in a photo. Especially in Mexico, where things are many times not exactly square! Here are two shots I took and the decisions I made in leveling. The first shot in each sequence is the original shot.
Since none of the trees were parallel anyway, it bothered me most that the roofline was not horizontal, so that is what I used to level the shot.
Since my house is situated on a hill, it is always a hard decision to decide what to make horizontal and it looks off no matter what I do. In the original shot, it bothers me that the front wall is not horizontal. Even if I level it, the shot is awkward because of the upward slope of the hill. One solution is just to crop off the bottom part of the scene so the street doesn’t show.
