Amongst a whole bunch of rejections (which have been genuinely educational for this newbie), I've just had this one knocked back for that old chestnut of not being level.
As reference, I took both the verticals and horizontals of the building and rotated the photograph to them. After receiving the rejection, I rotated it so that the plane was level but (you guessed it) the building looks like it's built at the craziest of angles. The ground at the airfield does indeed slope like that.
I know the quality of this picture isn't cutting edge; should I just forget about this one?

You did manage to get the most difficult situation on a pic to get it accepted here. You cannot win here. Either the building is unlevel, or the ground is. The only thing you can do is put a remark like this in the remarks field of your photo:
NOTE TO SCREENERS: this is level, look at the building.
They will remove that upon acceptation, and they can keep it in mind. Worked for me once.
