Default Leveling help

Seems I've developed an uneven eye, as I can't seem to figure out which way to go with these:

Calling Jean-Francois Dumont or JimThias. They both have mastered leveling, albeit in different ways...

Edit: the first 3 need CW rotation, the third one is the closest, maybe that one needs less than .5 deg CW

The last pic you posted has some compositional, cropping and quality issues as well as unlevel, so I am not sure it is salvagable.

Hi,
If you use photoshop for editing my best advice for leveling is to use guides. Just drag a few in from the rulers and put them next to what you are going to level the image on. If you can do more than one, all the better, sometimes the most obvious item to level on may not be as vertical or horizontal as first meets the eye, for example, lamp posts sometimes taper. Once you've dropped a few in just rotate little by little untill as may of the objectes match the guides. If you can find objects to the right and left of the frame as well as centre this will also help if you need to correct the perspective.
Hope this helps,
Mark

Level it with the vertical in the middle of the bridge, which is basically the middle of the image. From there you're going to notice some wide angle distortion. You can either fix that on the sides or leave it, as long as you have the middle vertical of the bridge level.
