Rules? You mean you didn't get a release from the subject?

Living in France, that's a contentious subject...

We learn the rules of composition, but they are not dogma. Breaking them (and I'm not sure you did) creatively is common and often essential.

I agree totally, as I do with Bob also,  but for some they are dogma, I was interested what people would think.

1/4000 sec at f/9 and ISO 320: Must have been very bright!  But it worked well.

Yes, I'm not too sure how that happened. It was probably because I was with my wife, so any kind of 'fiddling' becomes a real nuisance to her.  She has a sony point n shoot, always in iAuto, or whatever Sony calls it.

And, yes, it was bright, especially after the rain; no clouds and lots of reflection.
