I see nothing about rules here that are flagrantly in conflict.   I like it very much.


I'd have toyed with it further myself, mainly trying to get the 'horizon' level for more balance, but that's a typical back seat driver type comment.

I only noticed the level after I posted.

YOu know the rules, but you can trust your vision for when it feels right.  Use the rules to determine what might be wrong when it feels wrong.

Sure, thanks, I just wondered if it worked in a general concensus.



I agree with Bob about the leveling. One of the "rules" is that it's okay to make a symmetrical composition but it has to be as symmetrical as possible, otherwise it looks out of sorts. There are more composition types than just the "rule of thirds"; symmetry is one.
