    lately I have taken to tilting the camera diagonally to capture landscapes and other subjects where I want to fit as much as i can in the shot. The logic being that from the bottom left corner to the top right is wider than simply left to right and so can fit more in the picture. I am getting mixed results, so the jury is still out. Sometimes it works nice, but sometimes the shots look to "arty". Any suggestions?

    Hmm... well the frame is the same no matter what way you turn the camera. :)

    Do you think you could post one, or provide a link?

    But hey, experiment and run with your idea. I have one word of advice, when presenting them, try and put the crooked pucture on some kind of background, so the horizon is level.

    this should really go in photo discussions rather than critique
