I had this photography professor who hated tilted shots-- y'know, the ones where the horizon is diagonal, and the "water is spilling" and all that. During that time (since he was my professor and I respected him and it was photojournalism, after all) I scrupulously straightened my horizon using Lightroom. I followed the guidelines, the rule of thirds, and avoided the dead spots, even when cropping photos. I avoided taking pictures that had the subject too centered. I religiously followed the rules of post-processing, making sure that the whites were white and the brightness wasn't too bright, keeping the photo as close to reality as possible. I learned a hell lot from that course. I still kept my horizon straight.

But what the hell. Rules were made to be broken, right?

Angles add to the drama. Heck, it'd be so boring to have all your shots flat on the ground. Who cares if the horizon's tilted in your photo when it creates the feeling you want to achieve? Who cares about the "spilling water" when that sunset-by-the-beach is beautiful from a warped view?

It's all in the angles.
