Left to Right curve 2

Tommy Grønvold has repeated the measurement that Rory did.

Location: 59.058238, 10.407123

There is a straight edge set close to the horizon.  This controls any potential distortion due to lens distortion.  Here is the image scaled to 1920×1280, click for the full size:

I manually counted the pixels between the straight edge and the horizon at 100-pixel increments across the entire image.  These gaps were entered into a spreadsheet.  This was graphed and a second-order polynomial line fit was applied.  The line is clearly curved.
