Break the rules with impunity!
In reply to The Jacal, Apr 19, 2013

Knowing the "rules" (they're just guidelines really) is useful conceptually. But when you're responding to the moment with a camera, just go with your instincts. I find that's where my favorite photos come from. When I think too much I tend to lapse into cliches.

I like your photo a lot, though as Bob suggests I'd straighten the "horizon" line. If it's just a little off it looks like sloppiness or a mistake. But if it's way off it becomes intentional again...and even creative.
