Horizon first and foremost appears to be leaning to the left, I have not checked it but would say it is out by 1 degree.

Otherwise a lovely capture, I would have liked to see more of the shadow of the trees in the f/g also, but otherwise an excellent shot.

Landscapes aren't really my thing but I do rather like this.
To cope with the brightness of the sky in the background the camera has exposed it in such a way that the foreground shadows are very dark. I've uploaded a mod. in which I've simply tweaked it using the shadows/highlights tool.
I placed the ruler across the horizon and I'm not sure that it needs adjusting. If it does, it's by the tiniest margin. I've a feeling that the crooked trees, particularly the one on the right might be causing an optical ilusion.
I also applied autotone, although again, I'm not sure it's an improvement and I've sharpened it just a tiny bit.
All done in CS5.
Hope it's OK.

I get the feeling of a slight lean, but this is very simple and very nice. A very good image.
