Break the Rules
I know, I know. Although I mentioned the attractiveness that is often associated with following the rule of thirds, try looking at such techniques as a starting point or guideline. There should be occasions where we want to break out of the traditional mold and try something a bit out of the ordinary. I highly encourage you to get creative and experimental with the aesthetics of your images.
Take stray branches and spread them across the frame, place rocks in the foreground while your human subject is in focus in the background, or disembodied hands floating in the bright blue sky. Be sure to be intentional, as undesired distraction leads to the viewer's eye leaving the frame. You don't want that!
