Default My favorite wedding photo today

What do you think? To tilt, not to tilt?

I think the tilt works very well for this.

I probably wouldn't tilt- I'd be forever trying to straighten the picture if it was on a wall...!!

Normally I'd say no tilt, but the angle works for this shot. Nice work.

I guess I'm in the minority here, but I think no tilt. With the straight lines of the buildings being tilted distracts from the shot.

I'm with Mugmar and Simon here -- to a first approximation, any photographic gimmick that is more noticeable than the photographic subject is a bad idea. I know that wedding photographers have gotten extremely gimmicky in recent years, but I don't care for the trend. A wedding is (or at least should be -- Newt, I'm looking at you...) a big deal. Simply recording the event is all that is required.
