Looks like it's leaning to the left. If you're using Photoshop, I'd put a grid over the photo and rotate it clockwise until it was level with the taller building toward the middle.

Yes and no. If you look at the hill line in the very back of the photo it is level and I assume that is what the photographer used for a reference. When I was there some time back I used a wide angle to get the presented view and my buildings were leaning - I'm guessing this might be the issue.

Sorry to disagree, but the horizon is not reliable for level (except for large bodies of water). The photo is "falling over" unlevel, and it's surprising that the screener missed it.

Also surprising is that management has not quietly deleted this thread (yet)!

Staying positive - here is one that is level, does not have harsh high sun, is properly exposed and has a nice crop. Of course no SD-40 but then neither does the other. As a bonus it is before they made the bridge look like a prison barrier.
