Rules are just guideline, I would not worry about it too much.

There is a big difference between the rules for sports and games, which must not be broken and are like a box inside which the game happens, and "rules" for art, which are starting points and suggestions - an armature, not a box.

Having said that, I would, like others mentioned, level the horizontal line in the middle, and I would also crop the bottom a little to remove the dryer floor stones and the 3 heavy black lines.

Uhm... Drats, drats and double drats! Foiled again, now it is a 2/3 1/3 composition

I would leave it exactly as it is.    

Thanks, but I'm soo tempted to have another go at it....
