You have been brave to tilt your camera. Unfortunately the voters decided to vote higher photos taken during daylight and penalize a photo like yours. This is quite sad...

Gave this photo a 9, thought it was going to rank much higher. Then again, one of the top photos I gave a 3. I really like how fresh and clean the photo is. Barely any perceivable noise in the gradient in the sky/water, large aperture got the cityscape well in focus and a mix of warm and cold colorful lights.

I've been staring at this for a while now, and this must be Dubai. Looks like JLT on the left background and looks like it's shot from The Montgomerie or Emirates Golf Club. Nice clear sky and cool horizon tilt. Well done!

My brain got all excited when this popped up on screen, gotta give you tons of credit for that. I really wasn't expecting this, very refreshing and very well captured.

I don't like tilted horizons in landscapes, but here it really works!

I get a sense of something like a symmetrical tower in space or something after looking at this after a while. Weird, but interesting.

Love the image and the title is very fitting. Know it was intentional but I don't love the skewness.

i love this image, one of my favourites infact, the angle really really doesnt do it for me though, but i'm sure that's personal taste. good luck.

I think I would have liked this a lot more if it was level.

Incredible tranquility of the water.

I like this on the diagonal! Not the status quo...

Great photo, I like it a lot. Very clear focus. I do wonder if it would have been even more impressive had it not been at the angle you chose. Good 4 you for being unique.

Beautiful reflection. Wonderful clarity and light colors. I'm not sure I like the tilt. I'll look at it again tomorrow when I vote. Bumping this up two notches on a second look. I recognize the tilt allows more night sky and reflection of same.
