There are no rules. An image should look good to the eye and not be jarring. Most of all it should say something and not be meaningless. Without meaning an image has no value, it's just a recording.

Rules are things perpetuated by camera technophiles and photo clubs. Silly judges in neighbourhood photo contests judge images by technical rules, not by content.

Shoot images from the heart and soul. Photography is a language. Say something meaningful using the language of photography. All the matters is content!!!  Ask yourself  why you want to take a particular shot. When you have understood why, tell that through the medium of the image. Express it. The rest will fall into place. Really. I promise.
