Interesting. This breaks the rules about where to put people in a frame, but it works so well.

There are NO RULES...

A great piece by one of the greats. Only 2mins and 45secs long and about 2:20 in...Watch the whole thing though.
https://vimeo.com/1166​92462 (external link)

What some of the other greats had to say that support it.

"When subject matter is forced to fit into preconceived patterns, there can be no freshness of vision. Following rules of composition can only lead to a tedious repetition of pictorial cliches." - Edward Weston

"There are no rules and regulations for perfect composition. If there were we would be able to put all the information into a computer and would come out with a masterpiece. We know that's impossible. You have to compose by the seat of your pants." - Arnold Newman

"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs." - Ansel Adams

"And in not learning the rules, I was free. I always say, you're either defined by the medium or you redefine the medium in terms of your needs." - Duane Michals

"There are no shortcuts, no rules." - Paul Strand

"Photography is not a sport. It has no rules. Everything must be dared and tried!" - Bill Brandt

"I came from the outside, the rules of photography didn't interest me... "-William Klein "

...... a photograph can look any way. Or, there's no way a photograph has to look (beyond being an illusion of a literal description). Or, there are no external or abstract or preconceived rules of design that can apply to still photographs. " Garry Winogrand

and maybe my favorite
"......so called “composition” becomes a personal thing, to be developed along with technique, as a personal way of seeing." - Edward Weston

I agree with this, but I have to say that for when you are starting in photography, the rules are good guides. Once you control them, once you know them, once you are familiar with them, is easier to avoid them and create a very good photograph as the one mentioned above.
