Outside my window in the rain. -Does not follow the rule of thirds (cut down middle) -Not restricted to single subject (leaves & umbrella) -Subject (umbrella) out of focus -Frame intruded upon on the left -Broken up eye flow, without a guide path

This is a wonderful capture of exactly what it's like looking out a window on a rainy day. I like how it's been divided in half, even if it first draws the eye to the black in the middle. Here it's sort of divided between human and plant life, with the two people on the left and the leaves on the right. Good shot.

Oh, and don't forget to list the rules you think you broke :)

Nicely done. I had a feeling this was going to be a contest entry. IMO you have done exactly what people should be in this contest; the scene is actually made more interesting because you broke the rules. If you had focussed on the scene outside the window, it would have been pretty mundane; maybe even a snapshot. But by focussing on the window frame and leaves, you have made the scene outside pleasanty blurred, and we get the feeling of intimacy, almost as if we ourselves are sheltering inside and observing the wet conditions outside with you. Good luck in the contest, but whether you place or not I'm glad you took this.

I am definately enjoying the "feel" of this photo. Great job breaking the rules. I am certain a clear shot would not have given me the same pleasure in viewing. In fact, it would have probably been quite distracting. I do feel as if I am inside for all reasons stated well above me. Good luck!

When I got tired of running from you I stopped right there to catch my breath There your words they caught my ears You said, I miss you son. Come home And my sins, they watched me leave And in my heart I so believed The love you felt for me was mine The love Id wished for all this time And when the doors were closed I heard no I told sos I said the words I knew you knew Oh God, Oh God I needed you God all this time I needed you, I needed you. -Relient K
