Default Q About Unlevel

What should I be looking at in order to level this image?

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=821143405

I originally went with the pole on the far left which, to my eye, looks pretty darn level. When it came back for being unlevel I wasn't really sure what to go off of next. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

You need some clockwise rotation there - base it off of a vertical line in the center of the image (edges on the locomotive are good for that). The two towers on either side of the shot will bend towards the center of the photo slightly on account of the wide lens that you used.

Thanks, Nick. I'll give that a go and see what happens.

I've tried multiple variations and can't seem to get it right.

You want a little more sky and a little less on the bottom for that shot, if you can.

Play around with the Unsharp Mask tool to (attempt) to fix the sharpness issue. It might be too soft to save.

Wow. Now I feel really dumb. I read the wrong rejection. I thought it got the boot for unlevel again. This stuff is going to my head lol. Thanks again, Nick.
