I have noticed quite a number of obviously crooked horizons in some of the photographs that I see posted on Pixmag.
I have always displayed a selection of my work on the walls of my office, and I was quite offended one day when a visiting professional photographer pointed out a crooked horizon in one of them. I KNEW it was not crooked - I'm usually meticulous about that kind of thing!

It's rather like hanging a picture on the wall in a room where the ceiling or picture rail is not straight... one HAS to compromise and find a medium somewhere between the truth and the perception.
So that's what I do now, when I can - after all what is art if the viewers cannot perceive what is shown?
