It's not your eyes! The engine configuration looks to be the same as the 346. The inboard engines point slightly downwards (and inwards I think). There are some good shots of 346s in the db which clearly show this - sorry, I can't be assed to find one for you right now!

Ahhhh those French people! First they made the rear cabin floor of the Airbus slope upward and now the engine downward......they must have been drinking some of that good French wine (or German beer???) when they laid out the drawings for this machine!
