Generally you can't not tweak your picture. The most common problem will be having a level horizon or feeling.
Also it looks like there are some quality issues, if you look just behind the tail. The EZY color looks a bit sad

Well it is not unfortunate, it is a too high ISO number.. The photo was taken after sunset.
But if I took the same picture with a much lower ISO and same speed, would the background blur be acceptable ?
I believe daylight would solve the grainy/soft-quality/dark issue
