[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
Eastern tip of Montreal Island (Québec, Canada).

I placed the horizon at the center, despite the general rule that dictates otherwise. I found that in this case, breaking the rule makes sense, enhancing the balance between sky and water, the island in the middle "floating" between them...

It is just a guideline. But not a definite rule of thirds.
I think on this scene the center works well. It is a magical photo with very good reflections and colour.

It is fun to break the rules sometimes. I like the simplicity and symmetry of this image. Nice sharpness.

Evelynn : )

I perfect example of why some rules should be broken.
The colours are intense! Lovely!
Nice crisp details in the reflection. I can just imagine the full resolution version.
Well done!

Preciosa panorámica.
Bellos colores y encantadores reflejos.
Un saludo, JL.

Hello Marcel,
Very original symmetrical composition. Excellent idea and great realisation! I like also nicely saturated colours and strong contrast.
Best greetings,

Bonjour Marcel,
Belle et lumineuse image de ce merveilleux paysage. Les règles de l'art sont là pour ne pas être respectées:-)! L'image aurait pu être un pei plus nette.
Meilleures salutations

Bonjour Marcel,

Très belle composition. J'aime bien la couleur bleu qui est réflecté. L'ile semble flotter.
