The diagonal method:
The Diagonal Method is a "method" of composition that I discovered in 2006, doing research and experiments in relation to the (in photography existing) rule of composition called the "Rule of Thirds" (see the explanation in section 1). The Diagonal Method is rather simple: each 90 degree corner of a picture is divided in two angles of 45 degrees. The dividing line is called the bissectrice and is also the diagonal of the two overlapping squares in a rectangular picture. It appeared that artists intuitively were placing details which they find important, on these bissectrice lines.

No doubt a useful guideline, just like the Rule of Thirds or the Golden ratio. All of which will keep you from making pictures with all your subjects in the boring centre
But this looks to me like a case of selectively choosing hits and ignoring the misses...
