Well done treatise on compositional choice, Robin. Regarding your "rule of thirds" investigation, I find that I can see the "rule" at work in your representative photographs merely from a weight/placement aspect. This is not to say that I think you're wrong, only that even in wanting to rethink a rule, a photographer who is skilled will often compose with the benefit of experience playing a role in the outcome.
That said, I'm glad someone(s) are challenging the received notions of the wider (and often "workshop") community to make the case for reinterpretation of "the rules." I applaud your start and look forward to more from you.

Thanks, and great observations you've made about the article's photos and composition in general. Yes, you can take the girl out of the rule of thirds, but I guess you can't totally take the rule of thirds out of the girl :)
