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.

Let's see; horizon in the center, balance is left heavy and the ship's railing could have been cropped. Still it made my print-it list though.
