Dutch Angled New York

The Dutch angle, also known as Dutch tilt, canted angle, oblique angle or German angle, is a type of camera shot where the camera is set at an angle on its roll axis so that the shot is composed with vertical lines at an angle to the side of the frame, or so that the horizon line of the shot is not parallel with the bottom of the camera frame. This produces a viewpoint akin to tilting one’s head to the side. (via Wikipedia)

I love to shoot landscapes and cityscapes in this way. I’ve been in New York for the New York Comic-Con and took the chance to shot some interesting city angles that I think are perfect as desktop wallpapers or prints.

Here’s a selection.

It’s good to include some extra details, like the flags in this one.
When shooting Skyscrapers adding trees creates a nice contrast.
