Now here is a photo of mine that got rejected today because the angle of the camera does not seem to be straight compared to the
Now this confuses me!
If you take a close look then you can realize that the buildings in the background (under the right wing as seen from your view) are horizontal. The church tower (under the left wing as seen from your view) is vertical.
Could it be that the screener hit the wrong button by mistake or are my old poor eyes missing something?

Sure enough, the horizon is level.
I expect it was a wrong button pushed. Unfortunately, I'm working on a laptop right now so I can't judge well the other aspects of the picture (on my screen the plane looks whited-out, but that may be this crappy screen)
PS: No I do not screen photos when I'm using a laptop

I've also had shots rejected for "horizon not straight" when the verticals were vertical.
In some places the taxiways/runways are sloped (even at a pancake like AMS) which can lead to weirdlooking angles (aircraft running downhill when the lightpoles are vertical).

Attn GIMP users.
If you want to check you horizons are absolutely level:
Right click on your image:
Tools >> Transform Tools >> Transform.
Rotate the image until it "looks" right.
then check by:
Tools >>Transform Tools >> Crop and Resize.
This will open the cropping tool on your picture.
Don't crop the picture, just use the lines created by the cropping tool as a horizontal reference. It is exact!
It's better than placing a rule against the screen.
