only two days no biggy....

buut i think you did break the rule (you wanted to break the rule of thirds so placing it in the middle broke it.)

and it think it worked well in this picture....mainly because of the clouds...
nice pic

Vito is right. You broke the rule of thirds, but those glowing clouds rescue the photo from being static, which is what often happens when the subject is dead center. Actually, I've seen static photos that are very good, but it was when the subject matter called for quiet, perfect balance. Think of someone meditating while sitting in the lotus position.

Super earthtone with the cotton light from the moon breaking out, and the soft organic contour of the globe seems to magnify the overall mood for me, personally. This is a really emotional shot...soft...drifting... meditative (as Barbara suggests) and reaching beyond to the Divine. Real nice touch dd.
