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.

Oddly I didn't notice.

If it's just a little off it looks like sloppiness or a mistake.

It was a bit of both!!

But if it's way off it becomes intentional again...and even creative.  

Thats my line now!

Thanks,

Jon.
