I have looked at this image several times and I do not believe that it is tilted. I have been here numerous times and this looks just the way it should. The illusion I believe is the Manti-La Sal's in the BG they are not parallel to the lens as the range gets further away from the lens as it travels to the right. In other words the left side of the mtn. range is closer to Delicate Arch than the right side.

My 2-cents for what it's worth.

Merry Christmas.

pboehringer (2011/12/21 23:39:09): Jim, I thank you for your honest words. I looked again into the image with a critical eye and I believe that there is not tilt in the image. I am used to always use a bubble on my camera to ensure that the image is straight. However, there is always the possibility to have an image, once it is extracted out of the context, to appear tilted. I will try to do some experiments and see how it will impact.

When I get down to sharpening I composite the image using "ctrl+alt+shift+E" (make sure you are at the top of the layer stack). This produces a composite layer without flattening so you can reverse any sharpening you don't like by deleting the layer and starting again. Once you have sharpened using your preferred technique add a layer mask and with a black brush about 50%-70% paint one strike along the haloed edge to tone it down or eliminate it. I think on a edge this bright you don't need that much sharpening. With this technique you can experiment with unsharp mask, high pass, NIK Sharpen, etc. while still having all your layers in tact. One caveat, is to turn off text layers, background layers (white), strokes, etc before compositing as you don't want the sharpening to affect those layers. The artifacts sometimes can be really messy.

Even with the halo this is a winner. See ya next year - I am already better and I am planning on leaving a week from Thursday.

A mask on the sharpening layer. Can you fill me in so I do not look that stupid? :-)
