Default another attempt

I thought I would post here before uploading. This one was marked as horizion unlevel I tried it as a portrait crop but did not like it. It also was marked un-level. Can anyone suggest what is unlevel I would like to know what the screener does not like. I shoot here and other curves often so I want to know what I am doing wrong

Do you have a shot of it before it went into the 2nd curve? There is too much on the right and not enough on the left.

I think it worked better as the vertical, albeit with not so tight a crop as someone said in the previous thread. Frankly, the level looks pretty good and there is no correct, only what will pass a particular screener. One thing, though, that tree on the right looks a bit tilted over, so maybe a bit of CCW. Try a 5:4 format vertical, looser than before.

I'm not a fan of the overexposed headlight which looks even worse than usual with these sorts of shots. With all that and the high sun sort of look with the completely shadowed rails, I'd suggest remembering this composition for your fall Shen visits but putting this one aside.

The sponge bob leader looks awful.
