I agree with Les on this one, when the canvas is continually moving there isn't a lot of time for composition. Maybe that's why I like street shoots so much, as they go with my lack of patience and any exposure longer than 1/30th seems like a lifetime. I do try to guestimate the composition when I see something happening or about to happen, but that is usually only for a second or two before taking the shot.
