Thanks guys but as you see my work I never consciously follow the RoTs. I like to play a bit closer to the edges in many cases if I feel its fits the image better. I love these quotes by some of the greats.
"When subject matter is forced to fit into preconceived patterns, there can be no freshness of vision. Following rules of composition can only lead to a tedious repetition of pictorial cliches." - Edward Weston
"Then so called “composition” becomes a personal thing, to be developed along with technique, as a personal way of seeing." - Edward Weston
"There are no rules and regulations for perfect composition. If there were we would be able to put all the information into a computer and would come out with a masterpiece. We know that's impossible. You have to compose by the seat of your pants." - Arnold Newman
"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs." - Ansel Adams
"Photography is still a very new medium and everything must be tried and dare... photography has no rules. It is not a sport. It is the result which counts, no matter how it is achieved." - Bill Brandt
