Today I received a rejection note for a picture that was submitted some time ago. The reason for the rejection was that the horizon was not level. I am trying to fix this and upload it again, but not too sure which way and how much rotation it needs. I am also having difficulty finding the ID number for that picture so that it can re-loaded.
The picture can be found at:

If you have Photoshop, take the ruler tool and make with it a line parallel to the horizon. Then go to picture/rotate/manually and you have the exact number already filled in. just press OK.
If you don't have this feature and have to try, don't rotate several times, because each time the pixels are rearranged and each time information is lost. After three times you'll have a totally blurry picture. Rather try out an angle, and if it was too much, undo and try a smaller, and so on, until you have it.

Thank you guys for your help.
Craigy: I tried rotating the picture 1.5 degrees and it does level the horizon, however there is a white margin that shows at the bottom left corner and top right corner after rotation ??. I use GIMP to adjust my pictures, but have Photoshop in my Whish List.
Sharpnfuzzy:You are correct, that is YXU, my city airport. There is an observation deck open to the public but it is behind glass. I used a Polarizing filter to avoid reflections form the window. I have tried shooting from the fence but have had little success.
