Quoting Ptrjong (Reply 2): The mast on the left slants about 4.1 deg
The green container on the right slants about 5.5 deg at the same distance from the edge
Difference 1.4 deg, suggesting that 0.7 deg CCW is needed
Wouldn't CCW correction than not even emphasize the problem???
And I don't think the mast is a good reference anyway, looking at the white container, is has a complete different angle in my opinion and is more reliable

I guess, sometimes it's just a matter of personal taste of the screener... In this case, no levelling or other further corrections may help in any way. Just remember that there are human beings an not machines sitting behind the screens, so decisions are personal decisions.

Thanks guys, for all the replies.
Over the three years of uploading here, I found out that leveling pictures is not always as straightforward as pure math, and there have been many arguments here on the forum. It all boiled down to one thing: when the references are not dead obvious, the overall impression may be more important.
Maybe it is leaning to the left, and I just don't see it... Anyway, I'll try the mathematical approach this time. I've just measured using Peter's method, and it comes to slightly over 0.7 CW. I'll do that, and I'll keep my fingers crossed .
By the way, how does it work now with the acceptance threads - is it one thread per rejection or per photographer now? I have an inquiry concerning another picture now; should I continue in this thread, or should I start a new one?
