Default Can't Get the Leveling Down

I really thought I had it with the second attempt. I just can't seem to get the wide angle distortion corrected and the overall leaning rectified. Which way should I go? Do I need to correct any more distortion? If so, how should I approach the corrections?

Thanks!

I edited the first rejection in PSE8, and went with:

remove distortion +4
Vertical perspective +2
Horizontal perspective -3

The main issue to me was a slight gangsta lean on the left side of the shot.

Loyd, you pulled up too much on the upper left corner. It looks like you straightened that bridge too much, which probably should have a little hump to it. Compare his second rejection with yours and you'll see what I mean. His second rejection actually looks pretty good. I don't think it's noticeably unlevel enough to be rejected.

Does anyone else think this statement coming from JT is funny? LOL. I agree with him though. Some of the prominent poles are leaning, but poles do lean. The things in the photo that shouldn't lean (bridge supports, smoke stack, etc.) look plumb to me without marking it up.

The buildings in the center / left background are leaning slightly in both rejections. Pull back just a touch on the corrections I did on the left side, and it's there.

I can't believe the expert on leveling is going to let one just slide, no matter how small...

Hey, I only said that because there was a glaringly unlevel photo in the #1 Tof24 slot yesterday. I almost started a thread about it, too.
