    My god Swann, you're a tough man on the verticals and the horizontals! You're not a surveyor are you, or a mathematician? But I see your point, it should be vertical.
    fpantilimon, I love Massive Attack, but wasn't thinking of them at the time. I think there is about a week betwen the shots, back in november 2003. I agree, I hate when they ruin the perfection of the snow with snow ploughs!-mbru65

    I made my living as an architecture-photographer, that's where you learn about verticals I can tell you. You don't get paid with tilted lines. Too I like geometry well but am not practising.

    The lamp post IS vertical. Put up your screen grid and you will see it is.

    It is the things of nature, bending this way and that, that creates the illusion.

    Fotografz--thanks for interjecting! I think I have a pretty good eye for such things, but I miss now and again. But I think it is vertical. Let's see what Swann says, with the grid...?

    I agree, I made the test with rulers and guidelines. The lamp post indeed is objectively vertical. Despite it looks tilted to me. Must be some optical effect or illusion just as fotografz mentionned.
