I would be more radical with the rotation I am thinking more like 1+ CW
The trap you appear to have fallen into is you have leveled on the lower section of the nosegear support which by looking at other pics in the DB is clearly not vertical.
Something else to consider is motiv, or how the next screener will consider the motiv.. There are many pics of this aircraft in the DB (283 & 60 or so at Sinsheim) so common is also likely, and this to me is a rather featureless silhouette with a fairly unremarkable sky.
Just my worth, but then I am not a huge fan of planes on poles, If they can't be flying I like them where I can see detail or touch!!
If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

I think you should start over with the original uncropped photo. Use the two rear poles (next to stairs) and the vertical pole between them as your reference points for levelling. Use the grid on PS to guide you. You are attempting to level a tightly cropped photo which may expose you to motiv issues.
It takes knowledge to make a career. It takes wisdom to live a life.

Well, not directly. I think this shot is getting motive as I think shilouette shots doesnt do good on static a/cs, which are sitting on poles.Additional that wing from another A/c on the left is distracting ... , anyway , just my opinion.
