After noticing my crooked horizon the day after submitting, I knew it was going to be a very long week. Fortunately, I have great support and maybe some teasing from my sister ' . substr('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) .

Marla and Steve even created a "crooked horizon" reproduction that I will proudly display to remind me just how seriously I need to be taking all of this.

A big thanks to all who commented, especially those who pointed out the crooked horizon. I hope I learned something.

9 from me, didnít notice your horizon and Iím usually pretty sticky about horizons. Landforms can play tricks with horizons and on further review, it still doesnít jump out to me(although it is visible). Congrats on your ribbon. I visited Glacier for the first time last summer and Iíve been scheming to return since the day we left.

Wish I had a laughing emoji to put here.

Backstory:Marj grabbed the wrong copy of her entry (the un straightened horizon copy) then she injured her eye with her exercise band and needed laser surgery to repair the retina. When the dust cleared she was horrified that the wrong copy went live and to make matters worse it is scoring in the mid 7ís so she will have to look at the crooked horizon on her front page for the rest of her life. ROTFL Marj Iím glad you have two good eyes to see the crooked horizon.
This is still beautiful. Congratulations!

What a beautiful setting, gorgeous reflections. And that one single boat. The horizon is just a touch off though.
Nevertheless a lovely photo.
