Composition: Break the Rules

I have heard it said that to become a great photographer (or artist) you have to know the rules, but then you also have to know when and how to break them.  I have to admit that I am not much of a rule breaker when it comes to photography, I have a natural affinity with doing things the “right way” and not using the boundaries.  After looking through my work I did find that at times I did break the rules in subtle ways because I thought it looked good, so here are a few samples of work that I don’t think fit into the bounds of my composition guidelines. This is an area I could push myself more in in the future.
