Angry Horizon Unlevel - What??

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=146044

This shot has been rejected for bad cropping and unlevel horizon, I have corrected those problems and resubmitted one last time - only to be rejected again for horizon unlevel. I appealed, as the photo is now obviously level (poles are not straight, but that's a big DUH, look at the big wall thing) and got one of these:
Your appeal for photo id 146044 has been processed and has been
rejected.

Any body else have one of those tilted monitor problems?

It's definately not un-level, at least to me. Photos that are taken from above and at an angle give that appearance of an un-level photo, even though it might not be the case. The photo looks pretty good. The lighting and the other dynamics are fine.

While it's a great photo, it looks like it could use a slight rotation clockwise and maybe a little sharpening.

Good luck!

I think the photo is fine, maybe some fine tuning on the rotation might help. I think the problem is the angle of the shot combined with the angles of the poles and the wall give it that uneven look.

I think it's unlevel. While it is true that the telegraph poles are skewed, if you examine the signal bridge in the distance you will see that it too is leaning.

The signal bridges aren't straight in real life either! You can see the bridge in the background is level, the train is level, and the smokestack in the back is level. http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=81231

It obviously is tilted to the left. You know what you need to do to fix it...and complaining about it here isn't what needs to be done to rememdy the problem.

Yep, that one's unlevel, too. Maybe it should be removed?

That or should it be touched up and resubmitted?

Nope, because when I tilt my monitor the photos look level.

Default Any Better?

OK, now it's going downhill since I "fixed" it.

Maybe everyone is confused because the signal bridges, in real life, are actually off-kilter?

Or does it need to tilt to the right even more like this one?

Hey Joe,
Maybe you should just drop it and put it in the personal collection??

Cool

Maybe a good idea. I don't think any way it is, it will always be "unlevel".
