I've had a couple level rejections lately on panel shots that I thought were level. Because of my wide angle and the angle at which I take the shots (from the right seat, so it is not straight on) I'm having a hard time leveling the photos. With the small queue limits I'd like to keep my ratio as high as possible, so thought I'd ask for more eyes to help decide if these are level.
This shot was leveled to the top of the GPS and the top of the standby DG on my side. As far as I can tell it's level, but I'm not sure if it should be leveled to something else.

If you're levelling the cockpit rather than the outside horizon, both look to me like they need quite a bit of clockwise rotation still. Taking into account the position and angle of the camera relative to the instrument panel, for me even the coaming above the panel should have a slight left-to-right downward slant. Try levelling according to a vertical roughly in the centre of the panel, e.g. the line running down the panel on either side of the GPS in the first photo.
