For those of you who don't like central compositions...

I like the composition in post one, it works great for me.

As someone who does a lot of bird photos, I have often seen a different version of the left-right rule: at least in westernized countries where we usually read from left to right, a composition that leads in that same order will feel natural. Therefore, a bird with its tail all the way to the left and looking right will feel natural. The first image does exactly that, the boat at the left pointing towards the sun at the right.

Obviously, sometimes one should break such rules, especially if the idea is to challenge a little - but for this one it is just right.
