thank you vito, happy you like it.
you're right the top of the door is not level, probably a perspective artifact because this is a crop and the door was not centered in the original shot.

A very good one, iacopo !
As far as the top of the door is concerned, yes, photosbyvito is right about it.
Problem comes cause the shot has not been taken exactly in front of the middle of the door hence some perspective occurs.
I think it's a pity cause lines take a big role in this shot.
However , it can be easily be fixed in the following way :
- select all
- image tranform skew
- pick the right-top handler and and drag it upwards till the lines are ok.

The slanted vertical line of the rail on the left can be corrected by using the select transform distort as well , however, in this case , you will distort the door as well, so, in my understandings the best trade off is to leave it as it is cause a small slanted line on the left is less noticeable than a slanted line on the door, which occurs to be, both for position and for the color, the main subject of the shot.

P.S. : I would also try , if u have enough photo in the original one, a version with the door out of center and horizontally flipped, so that the eye can follow the rail from left to right and reach the door at , let's say 2/3 ? :-), of the "climbing path".

However, very well done again.

I attach my perspective correction
