I don't think the tilt does anything to add to the photo here. Everything is just kind of drab. Might do well in black and white to get rid of some of the dirty feel of it. Or perhaps that's what you were going for and I'm missing the point completely?

Occasionally, a photographer has a great idea and just takes it ever so slightly over the edge which flaws an otherwise good effort. This is a good example of that - the shot angle is way too sharp to be effective in an artistic sense - less of an angle would have been very helpful and taken it from an also ran into ribbon contention. From a technical standpoint, this is perfect and a complete success - crisp and sharp with excellant DOF control.
