I think it looks fine, a lovely capture.
Straightening is quite easy, but you would end up having to crop the image...and then something else may not look straight

Sweet and funny. I wouldn't worry too much about straightness here, but if your software permits you could try skewing the top right corner outwards a couple of degrees, that would improve the line of the wall without losing too much frame.

A lovely composition Sam. If you straightened the cottage then the sheep would look wrong, so I would be inclinded to leave it as is.

I think it looks absolutely fine Sam, but I'll pm with you a tip on how to straighten an image.

Lovely shot with the queue of sheep being oddly amusing Smile

For the straightness, I would at the vertical edge of the building near the centre of the frame and agree with you that it's sloping just a bit. (horizontals are less useful as they often slope with perspective) Still just learning photoshop myself after years of using paintshop-pro and it took me ages to find a useful rotate option; oddly obscured for such a basic feature!

I can only guide from the perspective of CS4; but if you click and hold on the eyedropper, you'll find the ruler tool which you can select - draw a line between the two points that you like to make vertical (or horizontal), then from the menus select Image->Image Rotation->Arbitrary... and from here you'll see it's magically filled in the correct value for you

You could straighten a little but it does look fine as it is.

I don't think this is the type of shot where straightening is required Sam, It looks fine as it is. Maybe if it was some architectural building then that would be a different matter,
