I have this shot of a UPS DC-8 in SLC. It looks really un-level to me, but I leveled it with the utility pole under the tail. I'm not sure if the ramp is sloped, or the pole isn't straight, and I just can't decide if the horizon looks level or not.

It looks pretty level to me. I would have chosen the "horizon" at the far end of the ramp that runs beneath the rear of the fuselage to level with. It covers nearly half of the shot, so should give a decent representation, and I just had a quick look in Photoshop and it seems dead level.
Lamp poles are prone to sloping As for the quality, that seems fine too. There are some slight jaggies on the yellow stripe part of the livery and on the rudder part of the tail, but nothing to worry about I don't think.
