I surrender
 
I really hate to ask for help as I usually can figure out my own problems, but I can't seem to figure this one out.

This pic. was rejected for leveling and I can't seem to figure which way I should rotate it. I'm asking for another set of eyes to take a look at it, because I think it is level, but I'm probably wrong.
I tried a couple of times, but I guess I can't quite get it. I guess I have stared at it too long. lol



Here it is: http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...key=1144412952

And here is another failed attempt

A little more counter clockwise. Try using the bridge deck as the level "horizon".

I'll try it. The bridge in the background was what I used because the railroad bridge is on a fairly steep downward grade, but the highway bridge in the background IS level.

Thank you for replying.

That is unusual. Sometimes it helps to mention these oddities in the "Comments to Screeners" box when you submit the pic.

I laid a grid over it and did the best I could at getting it straight. I'll let you know how it turns out. Thanks again for lending a fresh set of eyes to it for me.

I used the corners of the bridge piers, and the edges of the locomotive. My fix was a 4 degree counter-clockwise rotation, with a slight amount of distortion correction.

I didn't crop the image, so you can get a better feel for what I did. Keep in mind the shot is heavily degraded to fit as an attachment.

Nice shot btw!

I have my fix in the queue. I put a pretty good sized counter clockwise rotation on it. Thanks for taking the time to offer up suggestions.

Using the original rejection, here it is with a 2.25 CCW rotation:

One trick for shots involving a bridge...from an engineering point of view, to support the bridge the piers, or legs of a trestle HAVE to be vertical. If a bridge is on a grade, the adjustment is made at the joint between pier and superstructure, to the best of my knowledge. So, in this shot, use the edge of the concrete atop the pier to level!

I finally got it in. Thanks guys
