We do delete quite a lot for "not straight".
But we do find that there are some which intuitively seem not straight but we cannot be sure (and for a few it's an optical illusion). Buildings can be misleading when the lens has a fairly wide angle (not talking about fish-eye of course, which is not permitted at all).

That said, it is clear that one or two members have particular difficulty - probably using mobile phones - and did not discover the ability to straighten, despite multiple deletions and explanations.  Perhaps we should be less tolerant.

Chris, would you kindly pick a handful of fairly recent ones (but not from the last few days as Admin colleagues may not have reached them yet) - and email the URLs or ref numbers to .  That will help me review this.

"Only one on site" photos are kept, though we do ask the member to replace, if possible.

I would be happy that just Level Horizon is "problem" to be fixed. Huh

I refer to "SITE STANDARDS THAT APPLY TO ALL PHOTOS - Level: The horizon must be level and verticals should appear so. The image should be straightened where necessary.

Am I alone in finding scant regard to this requirement on many photographs which appear to be routinely accepted by our screeners? Levels are very easy to correct these days using a multitude of free editing programs.

Any thoughts?

Thank you for posting, Francesco.  Seems like the end of an era.

This auto-translated for me on opening:

For the second one (XYZ) I tried the writing tool also, but couldn't get anything for the fourth character.  But the others would seem to indicate that is is DAI---- MARU No.2.
But that hasn't led me anywhere.

The only candidates I can find currently on Japanese register:
DAIETSU MARU No.2 (IMO 8923909) 第二大越丸

DAIFUKU MARU No.2 (IMO 9140231) 第二大福丸

Well I have some unknown ships left:

1. RIGERU: Is this the right translation?

2. Unknown MARU: signs seems to be easy...

3. Unknown Fishing vessel: See Picture "Fischer"

4. Can the name "City of Kobe" match?

Thanks in advance and have a nice weekend - Marc

Many photos of the same ships are posted on this site. It would see a bit over the top to have to repeat the history every time a photo is posted on this site.

I agree with Simon. I would rather see more of his photos rather than a lesser number with their histories. I can look that up myself elsewhere if I am really interested

It is certainly an epic voyage for an old laker!
