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.

This composition ignores the rule of thirds by placing the subject in the center. It breaks another rule by choosing a square crop over the vertical 'golden rectangle' that is said to suggest grandeur/dignity/spiritual uplifting. A third rule is that diagonal lines imply movement. Here they collide with one another and stop dead. The theme of the picture is intended to be stability and strength. Does it work?
