First off, there are NO RULES when it comes to making art, so if your out photographing and find yourself wondering where you should put the horizon line in your picture and then you remember "OH! The rule of thirds!", you need to just clear your mind of that because that would probably not make the best photograph. It's difficult for many photographers to get away from letting these so called "rules" not influence their vision.
I've always been interested in not having just a single element in the picture as the "focal point" but rather where the WHOLE PHOTOGRAPH is the focal point for the viewer, and their eye can move freely all around the picture plane without getting stuck anywhere.
Attached is an example of a recent photograph I made from my Boneyard series.
