Levels

Keeping your photographs level can be sometimes a challenge. For example this scene has a number of ramps between two buildings. Each one of these ramps slopes at a different angle. The street you enter this arcade from is also on an angle. So how do you find what is horizontal? The answer in this case is: you don’t look for horizontal lines as they are all confusing by design. You need to look at the vertical lines in the shop buildings and align your image to that. Once you do that the horizontals will be right too.
