"The Campanile" on the UC Berkeley campus, shot from below to the southwest with almost the widest-angle my camera can go; the "horizon" is tilted in order to get the tower vertical near the edge of the frame.

Its a nice shot, well framed and edited, but must.....tilt.....more!
The ground may be sliding away but the campanile and the trees say your horizon line is straight. In a challenge like this (or for almost all the others for that matter) it doesn't pay to be subtle.

The tilt is not that obvious at first glance, I would like to have seen a bit more slant.

I would like to see a bit more sharpness.

Unless I am missing something very subtle here, this doesn't appear to have a tilted horizon
