Default Unlevel?? Umm...

I can understand why the screeners decided to hit me with an unlevel rejection, because they're basing it on the bridge in the background. That bridge is not level, it slopes downhill. So what do you think, appeal? "correct" it?

If you didn't do so before, whatever you do, make absolutely clear in the remarks to the screener what is going on. Always preempt the rejection when you can reasonably do so. Here, the nose is indeed level, so appeal, with a complete explanation.

I appealed the photo. Lets see if they actually understand it now...

Call me crazy, but to my naked eye, it still looks to be leaning ever so sligtly CCW. Going by the poles in the background more than the bridge or the train.

Well unsurprisingly, the screeners rejected my appeal. I even attached a link showing that it was the bridge not my photo that's unlevel. But whatever.

I'll try your idea Joe on leveling it some more, but I don't see it.

Train is centered on all sides. I'd say start by cropping some off the bottom and go from there. This is easily a shot that should get in the database.

It looks like if you crop it down further, you're going to run into an image quality issue. It looks to me like you're already near the "point of no return."
