Break the rules: Travel Landscape
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.

Rules be damned on this one. Thirds wouldn't work to portray this cold, massive, imposing wonder properly. Note the tiny (well normal sized I suppose) person above the falls for a sense of scale. I grew tired of trying to get the standard perfect falls shot. I have taken them, but so has everyone else. This shot (to me) is something different.
