Default I need help leveling

I can't find anything to level off of in this picture.

I tried the N in NEX but it's on the curved front of the train.

If you adjust for perspective distortion, it will be easy as you have clear verticals on the left and right. If not, I would go with the upper part of the grab iron on the side or the upper part of the leading edge of the first main side window. Always look for verticals.

Congrats - but it looks like you didn't change the level at all, just exposure a bit.

Greg,

I'm glad you got it on, but I must say that to my eye it looks like it's leaning to the right

It's still in need of distortion correction, and maybe a touch of rotation.

I did the distortion correction for the lens profile I had, and did some leveling.

I compared the two shows in adjacent windows, clicking back and forth, and saw no evidence of leveling. If you did, you must have made one of those micro-degree adjustments that brings pleasure to a screener and to Thias.

Except that the screener also takes pleasure at times in shots that are off by degrees whereas Jim is unwavering in his need for precision.

I watched the image change when I applied distortion correction.
