    I'm new to this so hopefully this wont sound too dumb!

    When using wide angle inside lovely big buildings to try and capture the feel and mood of the place i'm having problems with finding the "horizon", What should i do? I'm using a D80 with 18-200VR, any help greatly appreciated!

    Here's an example i took yesterday, just a little confusing!:blushing:

    Im guessing the place where you took the shot yesterday has stairs in the front, at least 2 or three, line them up in the bottom of the frame and shoot. You don't always need a horizon. You can also use leading lines where with a quick look at the photo above you have a couple which lead to the front.

    o and remember since you have a crop factor the FF equivalent would be 27mm focal length for 18mm.
