in my attempt to shoot the Milky way, i had to use the power lines as part of the composition to lead the viewer to the weak Milkyway shot, still in PP to increase the quality of the shot,

Power lines can be interesting like in this photo by Magnus Nilsson:

Constructive criticism is always appreciated.

Yea, I'll go with the hating powerlines.

Halos - they don't just happen with HDR. Any halos and the photo is immediately complete junk.

Dipping horizons, (and just because you used a level so technically the camera is level does not make it 'correct').

Anything with a pier in it. I freaking hate those long exposure pier photos in particular.

I hear you, But shorelines can be difficult to level - I do my best and it looks funny the next day on some shots. I'm looking at a statue shot that looks off, but the pedestal and background buildings are correct. Both the statue and a tree near it aren't quite vertical to my eye.

Shorelines can definitely look off - usually I find it is because the composition is not 'balanced', but in CO I don't do much with shorelines.

The perspective of various buildings doesn't bother me, again as long as it looks balanced. You'll never get everything straight in-camera, and sometimes if you do in PP in can look weird to me.

An example of 'my camera is level', from someone who is a good photographer and I do like a lot of their stuff. But this image drives me nuts. Actually in this case I don't think there is a solution except not shooting from this position.

An this is more of a 'classic'. Again someone I like and is a good photog and I guess the camera is level, but I can't look at this for long.

Of course these are supposed to be our own personal quirks, right?

I have another - I often quite like other peoples silhouettes, but any time I try one myself I don't like it. In fact I find it very hard to have a lot of deep shadows or blacks in my photos, yet I often like other peoples photos with those qualities.

That photo looks perfectly level to me. I don't know what you are seeing that makes it seem uneven to you.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

To my eyes, the horizon and the sedimentary layers in the rock look lower to the right. However, it is entirely possible that the geology is truly tilted due to uplift on the left side, and the picture is an accurate rendering of what one would really see.

First, I would like to point out this is titled 'quirks', so this is I guess supposed to be things that are personal biases.

In that photo, it looks like the camera was level, but everything looks like it tilts to the right to me, including the spires.

But, yes, it might be a personal quirk, and obviously it is much more subtle in that photo than someone just tilting an obvious horizon - but I don't even look at those.

Halos - I really am sensitive to halos, and I'm not talking about in obvious/'overdone' HDR.

YES! Halos sometimes cause my eyes to hurt; I think something's wrong and blink and blink and rub my eyes.

Humans in landscape shots. Useful for scale but I can't help but feel like it's a foreign contaminant in an otherwise pristine environment.

How many times have we seen the same shot of some guy in a red jacket, arms outstretched, standing at the base of Skogafoss? Ugh.

Power lines are horrifying. We're fortunate to have a lot of beautiful green space in our city. The down side is transmission lines everywhere.
