Is it just me or are the horizons sloping? It makes a big difference to tidy stuff like that up in Photoshop and is well worth doing IMHO.

Hi Neria,

Most of them are OK (I feel), but maybe the first image is slightly off.  For most of them, there isn't a well-defined horizon anyway, the mangrove edge being undulating, and for some the coastline on one side of the frame is further away than at the other, so the horizon does appear to be sloping I agree.  Where this happened, I have tried to keep the vertical elements vertical and parallel to the edge of the frame.

Another off-putting thing is that the pontoons that form the boardwalks on the jetties weren't themselves level.

Many thanks for your comments,
