I did take some straight versions too which should be deliverable.
What's the general take on dutch tilts these days? Personally I hate them for video but with stills I see them useful from time to time. But you're right, perhaps I do overuse it. Something to work on.
I'm not a tilty guy, but I appreciate tilt where it makes sense. What I don't like is when someone just tilts out of habit, or without consideration for the composition. If the tilt is just a thing you tend to do, then I'd say stop doing that, and decide to tilt, on purpose, when it benefits your composition.
I don't think the tilt hurts most of these images individually, but taken together, one does sort of get the sense that you maybe could use an orthopedic adjustment. If you can explain why you chose the tilt for each image when you took it (as opposed to why it works after the fact), then I don't have an argument with you. But my guess is you shoot a lot of scenes both straight and tilted and then decide later which you like. I wonder whether you'd be better off doing it more purposefully.
But the bigger issue is whether you're aware of the prevalence of tilt across the entire set you deliver. If you deliver a balanced set, then how you achieve that balance is mainly a matter of efficiency (i.e., not having to shoot everything twice). If you don't deliver a balanced set because you don't notice that a large fraction of your delivered images are tilted, then you should start taking more notice of those characteristics.
