Is my oil level high?

After reading some threads about fuel/coolant in the oil, and the oil level in the dipstick tube being high, I decided to take a picture and ask the question.... Is my oil level too high, or is it fine?

Thanks

I'm still new to the powerstroke realm, however I do think that appears a lil high. did you do the oil change yourself or take it in? may have been slightly overfilled during last oil change?

Fairly level, sitting on a flat tire though.

IDK how they do it where you are, but around here some places use a machine and they just punch in (X) quarts and it will put that many in, sometimes though it can put in a lil too much so that MAY be where that is from, one easy way to find out is drain a lil out and re-check it get it to the max mark, then monitor it. most oil change places around here hire kids out of high school with no experience or common sense at all.

Looks a little dark and a lil full. When's ur last oil change?

Have u checked for blowby? Often if u have too much blowby it will shoot oil up ur dipstick. I'm assumin this was taken when the truck was off?

Prolly just a little full. What kind of oil are u using? Uoa recently?

Define "normal" blowby. I'm struggling with this right now because after my egr delete I just now started noticing it.
