Break the rules: Travel Landscape

Challenge #3 in the Travel and Sports series. Hosted by bikinchris.
Challenge has finished
This idea is totally stolen from a post by Thom Hogan: Break the photography rules, but make a better image by doing so. No rule of thirds? no problem. Best shot wins, but break the (composition) rules okay? Break as many composition rules as you want. Sometimes, you need to know that the rules won't work. VOTERS: Vote low for any image that has perfect rule of thirds, balance or imbalance by way of rule of thirds, etc. The more perfect the composition fits the (normal) rules, the lower you should vote.

Bridge is on I90 crossing the Missouri River. I broke the following rules: Centered and tilted horizon Subject (bridge) is centered No Forground object Lackluster sky Doesn't pop There are probably others, yet I feel the image is appealing. Of course, most of the problems could be handled in Post Processing, except for the missing foreground object??
