The top pic needs about .5 CW rotation, use the buildings in the background.

Not sure about the second, maybe .15 CW rotation...

Hi Malcolm - the first one I also got to need 0.5CW rotation. You may find it useful to select the measure tool from Photoshop if you are using it (it looks like a ruler) select something that you know to be vertical, so in your picture the building edges or the middle pole. Use the measure tool to select along one of the verticals, I picked the pole. Then go Image, Rotate Canvas, Arbitary. You will then see the amount of rotation required to move the image to level.

This works well I find - except that is when there aren't too many obvious verticals / horizontals as in your second image. As in many of the threads of a similar theme here, the second image just 'looks' as though it needs a little cw rotation.

Hope this helps.

Flagpoles can be unreliable - I've seen a few photos in which several appear, each leaning at a different angle - but I agree that the church as a whole looks slightly tilted to the left. Or maybe they can't build straight in Luqa ...  Silly
