Quoting Ptrjong (Reply 3): there's a lush grass horizon just visible on the extreme left ... I'd try to use that.
Tried. Ended up rotating in the wrong direction ... The thing is, it's a hilly terrain, the hills are pretty flat, and when there are no verticals, it's just a lot of guesswork.
Quoting LIPH (Reply 1): Take the filed of grass as a reference (you do not have any vertical)
I used the dry grass horizon originally, the shot got rejected. The front edge of it is the taxiway, it is not level either.
I think the shot got rejected because the group of bystanders seems to be leaning to the right. On the original size version it's apparent, that the woman in the middle is leaning on the guy on the left, and he is sort of bracing himself against her. Not a reliable reference, either.
The fact is, I do like the shot but I have no idea how to fix the 'level'.
It would be nice to hear from the screener who rejected it, how much he thinks it should be rotated...
