I need some help leveling this shot.

Leveling it with the ground horizon will put the nose at a steep climb angle. What can I use as my point of reference?

thanks!

If you mean it needs clockwise rotation, that it certainly doesn't. You've got a boundary wall on the right of the photo which makes the horizon look like it is sloping up to the right, but that's a misleading impression.

If anything it might need a slight CCW rotation, maybe just 0.1 of a degree. Try it and see if it looks better.

I used a straight line under front and main tyres and a ccw rotation of 0.4 got the plane looking level. I know what you mean about the horizon tho.

The rotated version looks better, in my opinion. So long as the aircraft looks level I wouldn't worry too much about the horizon.

Thanks guys!!

The background horizon slopes upward, the taxiway just behind the aircraft (blue lights) slopes downward and the ramp pavement is totally screwed up.
