Composition: The World Askew

Challenge #16 in the Ways of Seeing series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
Traditionally, photos are always taken level with the horizon. That's because that's the way we see the world ... but it's not always the way we feel about the world. An image with a tilted horizon is disturbing to our senses, but that's exactly why it can be powerful. Show us an image that gains power through a tilted angle. (Note Addition rules)

32nd place
This is my brother in law from UK when we visited Seattle Museum of Flight. This is a mock up of the International Space Station Destiny. The photo was taken tilted to almost 180 degrees to "simulate" a floating effect, I'd give my brother in law an "A" for the ballet twist that complement the idea. Hopefully Jezsik doesn't kick this one out;)
