Oh, that's a very interesting rock formation. I am the anti-tilt (just my own personal vendetta against tilted images); however, I can actually see why you did it in this instance, and it makes photographic sense rather than just looking like an attention-grabbing gimmick.

The illuminated forground (fill flash I assume) takes away from the composition IMO
