Yes there is a perceived tilt to the supposed horizon line, but this out in nature, and there is no one horizon line! The middle ground left is sloped to the right, scooped out in the center and rises to the right side. The far hill is lumpy, the medium hill and trees are even lumpier, but most of all the tree trunks we can discern are vertical. Tilting the "horizon" level would have slanted them. That would be much more of a visual problem. This particular piece of landscape provides us a level of abstraction to demonstrate HD.

Well, the tilt got you the comments (as did the colours). All publicity is good, as is said in Hollywood.

Gorgeous scene - love the sunset/sunrise colors and the dead log up front adds the perfect little bit of interest. Maybe it is just me, but horizon seems slightly tilted to the right?

Beautiful composition, but the hoizon is tilted.

the horizon is more than a bit tilted and very distracting but great colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful colors, but the horizon is not horizontal.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the warmth, and I like the calmness of the water. The lighting on the trees on the right looks a bit out of place, though, and I hope you have a tilted horizon like that on purpose. :)

Be nice if the picture was leveled
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2008 10:23:19 PM
This would work better if you leveled the tree line on the far horizon.

The metallic foil-like sheen is rather spectacular. The DOF is rather nice too. 7

Beautiful colors. I wish the horizon line was straight though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2008 10:04:20 PM
nice colors but horizon should be flat imho
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2008 09:30:53 PM
Good colors but the tilted horizon line is very distracting
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I would have liked the horizon to be straight.

Would be perfect with the horizon straightened. Great composition.

Nice color and sharpness!

Strong colors, but maybe too much. Looks like a lot of Photoshop work. 6 from me.

Sunset? Very pretty whichever it is.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2008 03:40:11 AM
the tilted horizon takes away lots from the calm scene. could be a tad sharper, too
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2008 01:45:32 AM
Great colors, but for my tastes, a level horizon on this shot would be preferred. Excellent capture!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2008 04:32:05 PM
was that horizon tilt on purpose? Nice shot though. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2008 09:51:41 AM
the tilted horizon makes me dizzy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2008 04:25:51 AM
beautiful picture but the horizon is slanted to my eye (5)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2008 03:18:35 AM
Very cool shot, but the horizon line feels wrong to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2008 12:54:25 AM
A bit tilted however aside from that I like the colors you've shown here
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2008 12:38:20 AM
Nice shot, however, would like this with a little less processing done.

Beautiful sky, and nice reflection. Love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2008 03:52:05 PM
The levelling gets in the way of an outstanding shot for me
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2008 03:24:05 PM
Beautiful shot. Horizon seems very slanted though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2008 03:23:23 PM
Good colours and composition but don`t like the tilt.7
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The horizon looks crooked
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2008 02:40:13 PM
Looks like the Potomac River, but the shot is a little crooked :-/
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2008 02:35:40 PM
Love the shot, gorgeous colours, great reflection but the tilt really hurts it and loses you a couple of marks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2008 01:37:52 PM
Your horizon is running up hill to the left?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2008 12:38:45 PM
this shot has great substance, I like the composition an the warm colours, but the crooked horizon really doesnt give the rest of the picture credit!Your postprocessing is also quite visible, mostly on the woods that seem too bright and flat in comparison to the rest of the picture.. also the halo around the the backend of the woods make the postprocessing way to obvious...but overall a really nice entry :-)

Your photo isn't aligned perfectly. Great shot, but could've used a rotate 2 or 3 degrees CCW.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2008 11:12:39 AM
Nice picture.
Does it need to be rotated a bit to make the horizon line level ?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2008 10:55:48 AM
I like the photo, but it appears to be tilted. I would have liked it better if it was straight.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2008 10:31:09 AM
This would have been wonderful if only it was straight. Great coloring.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2008 09:23:06 AM
Seems like it should have been rotated a few degrees counter-clockwise to level out the horizon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2008 09:02:13 AM
It's not straight !
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2008 08:08:51 AM
Wonky horizon and lots of halo's
