Two things are annoying me a little about it. It was taken in the early evening sunlight, so should have a golden touch to it, but do the colours seem ok? I've had to bring up the blue quite a bit in Photoshop as it looked way off before.
The other (really picky) thing is the Singapore titling. As I've sharpened it there still seems to be some white areas at the top and bottom that I haven't got rid of. Does this matter?
These might seem like really small details, but they're going to annoy me all week if I just leave it without asking anyone their opinion.

I think this is a very beautiful shot! The lighting and colours look very nice to me, maybe a little dark under the registration, but all in all I would be confident. However, that's not a guarantee, when you would look at my acceptance ratio
I have a similar picture currently in the queue (side-on big plane in evening light), I always think side shots are difficult in a way because there is "so little plane in the picture". In particular sharpening is crucial then. But I don't see any problems, in particular not with the titling.
Something you may not have noticed is that the plane doesn't seem centered vertically. I recently had a side-on shot like this one rejected for badcentered. It may be more an impression than a fact though...

Ok but I still don't know how to level it. Initially it got some CW rotation to level the top of the grass.
Below is an uncropped and unrotated version of the original. The grass slopes from right to left and the two cooling towers immediately under the APU still seem to lean to the right, yet the next pair don't.
