On the lake,Russia
Lakes are very difficult as often they have false horizons but personal I much prefer a considerable movement:
That's nice. A tip for this kind of shot is to use the reflection (of the trees) to get the level. The reflection has to be the mirror image and you can clearly see that, in the original, the reflection is the "wrong" way. If the trees on the far side were indeed tilted then the tree+reflection would form a shape more like "<" than "/" as they are. In the corrected version the reflection matches the tree.
Good tip, in fact I found a free that was vertical and moved the grid lines over it and then varied the tilt until all was lined up.but that will only work if a suitable tree is present
It will work with any angle of tree (or rock or whatever) provided the reflection is clear enough. You just have to pick a point on, say, the trunk and rotate the image until the same point on the reflection aligns with the vertical grid line.
Nice shot with good foreground interest, but poor light. They are right about how to level it up. In fact there are trees leaning that shows the < > effect. Good tip.
