Default Level horizon

Had to play with this one a bit does it appear to be level?

I think it needs some more playtime. Slight CCW rotation should do the trick. But you might have some trouble getting this one on the beloved database with the vegetation issue covering the front trucks. But ya never know.

Might just be me, but the trees above the locomotive made my eyes water they were so green.

Well thats the kind of thing I look for, I did some further adjusting it was kind of a tricky spot I can crop a bit more of the pole and vegetation out.See the train was on a slight angle and the horizon was a hill so I tried levelling by the angle actually screwed it up so I will submit it in its original angle.

Well, I don't know the original angle, but why not just level it properly? In many cases (just about all?) that means find a vertical in the image and make it vertical. Horizontals go all crazy depending on viewing angle, but verticals are always vertical (unless the train is viewed from the side on a significant grade). So look at the verticals on the nose and cab.

I think the saturation may be too much as well.

Needs a CCW rotation, Gord. Maybe 1 degree?

That spot looks to be where I shot the 3085 and the F units on a passenger train back in 2004.

Looks overexposed a bit, too much saturation as well. As Ben said, some CCW too.

Big time and it needs to go CCW.

Perhaps level it using the cross-buck pole on the right.

There is also the foreground obstruction on the front truck.
