Default Horizon Unlevel

I received a horizon unlevel on this submission. I am not sure where to apply the horizon line or how to approach this. Can you help me with suggestions of CCW, CW or maybe something to align my ruler with? The train is on a bit of a leaning curve at this location if that helps at all. Thank you in advance.

I would suggest a slight CCW rotation based on that building back there and those trackside signal shacks.

Looks like an elevated curve. I have zero experience shooting on these but my thoughts are some CCW rotation.

I think it's level and it's on a curve, but for some reason RP want the train level not the surroundings! LOL

Definitly need CCR... it will most likely also get nailed for distracting shadows even if you fix the unlevel horizon... maybe just redo it again without the shadows

Yep. I'd suggest either "Born On A Bayou" or maybe the extended version of "I Heard It Through the Grapevine."

Very cool response! I'm actually more of a "Suzie Q" kind of guy...

It needs some counter clockwise work, based on those buildings in the background. Suggestion: since the "horizon" isn't really clearly noted here, find the obviously vertical elements in the scene and go for that.

...I can't believe I'm actually advising someone to "level" a photo. What hath God wrought?
