(reminds me of an old 80s glam rock song)

Anyway, Don's post on breakin the rules. Heres one that breaks allot of 'em...yet...there is something about it I like. No one else may like it...but something about it made me go back to it several times.

So, I'm posting it.

Thoughts are welcome, but keep in mind....I already admitted I broke the rules.

Okay... I'll bite.

What rules are being broken here?

The only thing I see that's wrong (and I hesitate to use that word, can you really define anyting artistic as right or wrong?) is the amout of dead space above her head.

If this were my image I could have cropped it just a bit above her head, OR were you trying to show the thatched roof as part of the photos theme?

That is one of them...the vast amount of empty whiteness. But, when I cropped it, I liked it less than with the thatched roof. The fingers being chopped off would be another. AND, although you could argue it follows the rule of thirds in a left to right manner, the first and third...third...are all white space.

Rules are meant to be broken. What gets me in this image is the hat at her crotch.
