Default Horizon Unlevel?

My photo of VIA 95 got rejected for the horizon being unlevelled. I just don't see it though. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

You got me on that one. It "feels" like it might be leaning a little to the left, but I don't think it actually is.

Nice photo, I might crop a smidge off the bottom.

The left side of the VIA building looks nice and level, but the whole picture seems to be leaning to the left, which is probably what threw the screener off at first glance. Perhaps you can rotate it CW ever so slightly. Have you applied perspective correction? That might help, it's a pretty wide angle!

??? it's 55mm on a crop camera, that is a telephoto focal length

no perspective correction needed, both left and right edges look fine

0.2 degrees CCW, not CW, or just appeal.

I dunno, it looks ok to me. I see nothing glaring.

Looks like the unit might be leaning right, a bit under sharpened too.
