I quite like it this way.
Lines don't have to be perfectly straight all the time.
Nice bit of landscape.

Hiya herman. A beauty and love the reflection Grin
I live in quite a built up area so views like this I don't see often.

Looks like a tractor is adding some interest on that beautiful green field. There are a lot of conflicting lines but I would never trust a fence post to be straight......... All in all a fine Bit of. Rural scenery.
A wonderful landscape nice shadows and good texture.
Well done. WesternRed.

I think the field is on a grade. The water level is fairly straight. Nice rural image.......Sandy

A lovely view, Herman, my thoughts are that the fence posts are wonky, and not the horizon Wink Carol

A cracking landscape, the numerous details draw the eye and, IMHO, it looks OK to me

It looks perfectly level, Herman (check the reflections in the water, they should be vertically below what they are reflecting).

lovely landscape

I like yours best - some things just aren't meant to be level and the landscape is one of them. It looks so hot there - trying to snow here!!

Scenes like this do trick the brain sometimes Herman, excellent landscape and reflection., the dust add to the dry environment.

Me and my vertigo.......... I like the original and initially thought that the water was level so it must be the fine. The modifications tell a different story and I do like the modifications here, but, is the story not in what the viewer sees Grin. Now all I have to do is pack some sandwiches, sit at the side of the river and enjoy that view.

Una imagen con varios elementos que son una maravilla. El reflejo y polvo que leventa el camino la hacen especial..

I think it's difficult to be sure about how level the horizon is without a stretch of water present: the slope of the land in your own shot looks quite natural to me.
And a very attractive landscape it is with some strong reflections adding interest.

You always go by the horizon Smile Fence posts can easily tilt. My first lesson was to not shoot the person on the beach as straight, if I did, the ocean was always tilting.

There is also the factor of vertical perspective which can throw you off also.

The upper third is over-exposed, the middle third is a largely un-interesting expanse with a burnt out wash of dirt/smoke whilst the lower third is a bit of a bit of a fence line with a reflection awkwardly squeezed into the composition. There is no strength in the composition and it is in that respect where this is let down.

I do agree with Rod, Herman.

A nice scene despite the comment two above Herman, it looks fine to me the way it is, but I do note it is in fact about 1.5 degrees off, how do I know?, simply by the reflection of the mountain peak, it should be perpendicular, that's the only measure you can use here, surprised no-one else has mentioned that!
