Mostly that, although I'm not a fan of lines coming out of the corner. You could retain the original aspect ratio and back out a bit (relax), for me.

But yeah, this fills the frame with the subject and context. Curious what others might think.

If you are going to use a dutch angle on an image you need to make it obvious. When it's fairly close to level, the angle looks like a mistake. Now with that being said, it's your image and your vision. Do what you prefer but realize how others will view it.
