Default Horizon Unlevel

I don't see the horizon in this picture being unlevel. The undersharpened part I can fix. The building in the background is horizontal. It looks pretty straight to me. Anyone know what else it might be?

Leaning to the LEFT big time. I'd rotate CW about 1.0 to 1.5 degrees. Maybe a bit more?

If it were leaning to the right wouldn't you have to go the other way?

I see a slight lean to the left, but looks like you have some distortion issues.

Undersharp seems to be the flavor of the week for rejections.

That building is leaning to the left slightly. I'd say .5% CW. The train itself is more the tell tale sign though. There is some wide angle distortion going on, too. When you level the train, the building starts to lean. I played around with the "Correct Distortion" filter in PSE7 and got some to me decent results, but someone else could no doubt do it better.

Or you could fix the leveling, then make a note to the screeners that it was shot wide.

Holy crap.. Dunno what I was thinking when I typed "right." At least I got the direction of rotation right!

The building in the background looks level because the rest of the image is unlevel due to the wide angle distortion. If this picture were level, and you didn't fix the distortion, the building would appear to be leaning slightly to the right.

0.9 To the right will fix the lean. Fixed the distortion and left the bottom right to show how much I had to pull it. Not the best but close the left is still off some.

wide angles can be a PITA sometimes....most of the time if you're trying to get your photos on RP.
