hmm, too many margaritas on the beach?

Again! Tilting the camera is not very creative.

Personally, I think this missed the point of the challenge entirely...

Great timing here. Definition of water, subtlety of colour. (Not a criticism, but I can't help wondering what the shot would have been like with a horizontal orientation).

A tilted horizon is not wrong per se, but I believe it should be used carefully and for a specific purpose, for example to increase drama, to compliment an unusual perpsective, or to compliment at theme such as abstract shapes. In this case, to me, it brings nothing and indeed detracts from the viewing experience.
Apart from this major caveat, you have captred a lovely sunset - I hope you took some 'straight' photos, too.

I'm not crazy about the tilting of the shot to qualify for the challenge. Otherwise a good picture.

Beautiful image. Unfortunately, there are way too many entries in this contest where people simply tilted their camera to create a diagonal image...

Good colors and sharpness here. But my opinion is that ocean horizonts should allways be horizontal, its not working for me here. Horizontal in another challenge I would rate it high.
