    I usually think about composition, though not necessarily in terms of rules. And, like Nigel says, I often wish that I'd thought about it even more...

    What's with the 'rules' emphasis?
    If you have the time, a shot is composed by what you, as the photographer, finds most pleasing in whatever you are taking the photo of. Some instinctively compose pleasingly. Some just don't see what's in front of them and no amount of rules will change that.

    I tend to "Frame" every shot, as best I can. It is automatic and mostly done at a sub-concious level.
    Not every shot offers the opportunity to consciously Compose and adjust in a meaningful way.
    Usually it is a question of accepting or rejecting between remarkably few options.
    I discarded the idea of "Rules" more than 60 years ago.
    Compliance with rules, is more something you discover in picture you have already taken rather than impose on scenes beforehand.
