Yep, that's a really crooked horizon. It's tilted so far he must have meant to do it? But why??? Does a crooked horizon bother you as much as it does me? I have 3 levels on my tripod, live view is set with the leveling meter on, and I take great care to frame my shots. All this so that hopefully I dont have to crop too much and I can keep as many pixels as I can for printing. But at some point aren't the rules just so constricting?
Not to say that this is an award winning way to break a suggested rule of landscape photography, but isn't breaking rules the way we discover things. We may even learn that a particular rule, or set of rules, really dont fit us or have any place in our lives. In my experience a lot of societies rules were based on judgement and trying to make one better than another.
Perhaps that is why I love artistic endeavors so much, because even though there are rules, you get to break them in the name of being creative. Honestly it is refreshing to take something that others may consider wrong and make it right.
This idea helps me to understand that there are many different rights in this life. My way may not be the only way. There are many rules from the past that we need to let go of, opening our minds and hearts. Which is something I think we all need to remember, to make a conscious effort to understand others. Because perhaps, there are many, many, many ways to percieve and live this life.
