It looks like you have a tendency to tilt the left side of the camera up just a bit, causing the horizons to slant slightly from upper-right to lower-left. It's more noticeable on ocean pictures like these, especially the ones with such a clear and mostly unobstructed view of the horizon.

He's on a moving platform, so it's likely not his tendency. Just a fact of life. If straight horizons are important, yeah, fix in post.

The photos in the linked flickr set had a tendency to be tilted as I described. Interesting that none seem to be tilted the other way. Maybe it's a coincidence.

The important part, of course, is that it's probably a good idea to correct tilting in images that contain long, practically unbroken shots of the horizon, stretching from one side of the image to the other.
