That's like my wife. She doesn't like anything at right angles. However, in this instance I think the tilt is distracting. You might have tried straitening it and then cropping one side to avoid centering the door.

I agree with Walter, but it certainly looks like a relaxing place to sit!

I have to agree with what has been said. Intentionally tilting an image can be very effective at times. However, in this case, it simply does not work.

That looks good. What editor are you using. Paint Shop Pro X has a straighten tool that is very simple to use. It starts by putting a line in the center of the screen with handles on each end. You drag the ends of the line so that it aligns with a line in the photo that should be horizontal or vertical, tell it which, and it does the rest!
