Composition –doers and talkers

Trying to read up on composition.

It seems that people who do not know how to do it, talk about it, whereas those who know, just do it.

From the photo books on my shelf, it seems that you often have diagonals with a 90-degree cross in the upper or lower third.  Then you get converging lines with the hot point in one of the knots of the 3x3 grid. Also V's, C's, S's and L's...can be seen, sometimes inverted. I can see them there on the picture, in lines, colors or luminosity, but is it only my eye-brain creating ghosts or did the artist put them there on purpose?

I really do not think that any photographer actually thinks in terms of these patterns. Some artists, especially comic book creators, seem to take advantage of the very basic rules.
They work when correctly applied.

The 'analysts' on YouTube are like turtles teaching other turtles the secrets of flying.
None of them have wings. (Nor do I for that matter.)
