Question central character turned away

Anybody else having problems with logging in? I have to log in several times to post once!
Anyway, my OTHER question

I'm working at portraying a group of people during an important event. One person is central, but it is the event itself that is important here, even if just a bit more than the main character. My first thought is to show that central person turned away, in ¼ profile, the back and right arm, partial face.
Is that an absolute no-no?

Re: central character turned away

Have you checked the box "keep me signed in"? Or it is something to do with cookies- hope that helps.

As to the composition- I think even though the event is the important thing, everyone will be looking for their faces- or at least able to recognise themselves.
Some composition ideas..
