I can't say I've ever paid much attention to the rule of thirds, I just tend to trust that when a picture looks right to me, then it is right. Occasionally in retrospect I find that my compositions are clumsy, but I think that's probably due to haste and laziness more than anything else. Then again I quite often find that they do seem to conform to the rule. More or less.
Anyhow, for those of you who have been relying on the rule of thirds, I just thought I'd let you know that you're getting it all wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong.
No need to thank me.
