Rules are meant to be broken

I have previously written about rules of composition like the rule of thirds. I have heard many commentators say that the subject of the photo should be fully included in the photo. I can almost hear some people saying why have you not included the full head?

The answer is simple, because I like these compositions. Rules are made to be broken and sometimes areas of nothing can look good. There is so much of interest in these photos that is of a more abstract nature. Sometimes you don't want the eye to be drawn to the usual places and these croppings allow the eye to wander.

Happy snapping.
