    Nice tilts, Antonio!
    Tilted horizon with cars.

    1 2 3

    I guess cars are very grateful objects for this kind of assignment:-):):
    It's also possible to start making some conclusions, like:
    • the more aggressive the tilt is, the bolder car looks (to me, at least)
    • with the tilt you may get some nice reflections
      Note 1: proper polarizer is always good when working with highly reflective surfaces, such as cars' clear coat finish, chrome and glass
      Note 2: we need to watch for our own reflection, since in most cases we don't want it to be there
      Note 3: we need to watch in general for WHAT is reflecting
    • Low vantage point tilt is very different from the high vantage point one.
    Just my observations, purely MHO, YMMV, etc.

    Slightly Squewed
    Here is my first submission which should work for Assignments #1 and #5. No flash. Lighting is soft florescents and filtered sunlight. Whata combination. Now, mind you, this is not a setup shot so it is not "perfect". Just what I can see from my desk that works.

    It's surely tilted and angled, so it fits alright.
    However, maybe because it's kinda normal to view those types of things from this angle and "up close", it does not strike as a "novelty item", you know what I mean? ne_nau.gif
    Let's get another tilt, we still have time:-) thumb.gif

    Both your entries (day and night) are tilted, but I cannot help noticing to awesome quality of the second image.
    On first one the tilt didn't help much (if at all), which is perfectly OK, since we're learning where what works.
    But on a second one you nailed it, and I think the tilt was exactly what doctor ordered!thumb.gif

    Nice tilt!

    One of those where you can actually even some other line (roof top in your case) and thus retain the balance...

    Office tilts
    Didn't have too much time to go out for fresh tilts, so I decided for myself that from tilting p.o.v. office shall provide same opportunities as any other place.

    All the following were taken at our 2 story office building, shot RAW and NDA-processed (NDA - non-destructive adjustment, ACR in this case).

    01: Tilted Stairwell:

    A couple more shots from the other day. My Ex Gf use to say this building looked like a milk carton. I guess at the right angle and distance it kinda does.

    #2 This next one gives me the illusion that the photo is un even. It looks like the right side is tipped down, like there was a way to do an unsquare crop.

    Tilted food
    The food was shot yesterday. It was our dinner.
    Today I corrected - as much as I know - the white balance and here it is.
    93660855-L.jpg

    I shot the tree in the garden today as soon as I arrived home.
    May be it was needing a bounced flash...
    We can hardly understand where the picture is tilted... Watch the tree at the back ... This is a fruit tree.

    WB in the kitchen can be tough, since you may have up to three different light source - daylight, tungsten and tubes.. You did good:-)!

    St Peter's Bottle
    Maybe not the best use of tilt, but i wanted to try out my extension tube. This is an uncropped, full frame. The bottle was laying on its side lit from below in the back. I did tilt the camera but I also flipped from landscape to portrait in PS because it looked a whole lot better I thought. Shooting with an extension tube is a whole nother world, lots to learn!! Cant wait to find some interesting subjects.
