Default Need Help Leveling

Rejected for horizon unlevel, but every vertical takes me CCW in a way that looks wrong. Verticals take me way too CW.

Really lost... which way?

As I learned here, find a vertical or horizontal in the center, level that and the rest falls into place.

Assuming the center is level in reality of course!

It's not bad unlevel, but I can tell it when I look for it in the signal on the right but even the locomotive itself. 5% CCW rotation should do the trick and might actually be a hair too much.

Dennis nailed it.

Funny thing is, the 2nd top of the last 24 hours right now is 10 times more unlevel than Charles' shot, but somehow the screeners overlooked that.

Damn! I just got an A from the man I learn most about leveling from. I guess I graduated.

However, it's just not the same lesson coming from a goofy lens rather than a beady-eye dog...

Thanks to all (and thanks to J for helping me with the original crop).
