Ah badcameraangle - home at last
Andreas - I think I can see the issue here. When I opened the first image the upright edge of the hangar on the far left of the frame - right next to the window of the browser - was sloping. In the newer version I can see you have made a slightly different crop, but that same vertical is still slightly off. Just to the left of the tail of the helicopter, there is some white at the bottom of that hangar door, indicating a gap, but that gap isn't there right at the top of the frame, indicating it isn't vertical.

Use the verticals when possible, preferable buildings rather than lamp posts. It's best to use verticals in the middle of the picture (if there are any). When using a wide angle lens, verticals on the far left and right can slope sometimes, and that's alright (can't be helped).
Both pictures need some CW rotation. Must say it's very little...

Quoting CallMeCapt (Reply 7): It may be possible to fix using perspective cropping which can drag out the corners and make it look straight.
You beat me to it Goran, Yes it can be fixed. When photographing buildings they will alway lean inwards and the two methods to correct this are to use a Tilt and shift lens, very expensive, the other is to bring it into PS and create a duplicate layer and free transform to image to correct the distortion caused by the lens.
