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.

There is a big empty space occupying most of the picture and bathers' area in the background. It is just to give you an idea of the overall scene. The subject is nowhere near where one would expect. It is the diver's feet, lower left. He was diving for shellfish, sea urchins, etc. in the waters near the Castello Aragonese, Calabria, Italy.
