I love the image but wonder what your mindset was in using the Dutch Angle.

Always curious! S-

I was looking to accomplish two things by tilting the frame; create a less static composition and have both foreground and background elements in a favorable position to fill the frame.

Both being tall objects, a portrait orientation seemed the better choice. Had the framing been straight the two elements would have been side by side and each would then be pressed to the outside edges of the photo (building to the left, statue to the right). To avoid crowding the edges I would have had to shoot the scene a little wider, making the subject smaller in the frame. By using a Dutch angle I changed the composition from a side by side to that of a top over bottom, fitting a portrait orientation better.

I've noticed I tend to prefer filling the frame with a subject. :D

I suspected something along these lines but appreciate the detail as it helps me to consider new options in the future!

There's actually a little more psychology to the Dutch Angle than I have time to explain here. Perhaps this will be a topic for a tutorial. :D
