      Extra Info: Not sure that I have got to grips with the concept of the Dutch Angle and Covid-19 conditions restricted my access to many places I should liked to have visited to get a shot. In the event this was taken through the glass of my lounge window.

    Interesting feeling looking at this scene. Not sure if Dutch Angle helps here, though.

    I don't envy you with the restrictions on movement. I honestly believe this is one shot that should not be tilted. Looks like a beautiful sunset. I hope you took another on the level.

    I like this one a lot. To me the dutch angle plus the way all the branches of the tree are on one side create a sense of great turbulence. Maybe it's because Hurricane Laura just passed by, narrowly missing us :-). A reminder that nature is not always beautiful, peaceful sunsets.

    I know your problem but your title helps to put this one in my picks.

    The restrictions are certainly hindering our photography aspirations,. Anyway you have met the challenge and the sunset is very appealing. I like the crepuscular rays. In my tt.

    Nice sunset colors, but I can't see much rationale for the Dutch Angle, other that to suit the Challenge theme.

    The tree's odd shape gives this a sense that the sun's rays are blowing it over.

    I rather like the way the sunset angles toward the tree, and the tree boughs lead off to the right

    I'm adverse to standard sunset shots and even more tilted ones. The sky and clouds are great and they seem to be the subject in which case I would get rid of the tree. Or, better, make the tree the subject and give it center position.

    A great view and an impressive sunset - not sure it benefits much from the tilted horizon, but the tree on the right is impressive.

    some great shots are taken within500 yards of where you live. I also have restricted travel
