Almost all photographers will always advise to follow the rule of thirds, when taking a picture, and not to place the subject in the middle of your composition. But rules are made to be broken, they say. Sometimes one achieves a nice effect by placing their subject in the middle of the composition. I like, in this image, how the tall silhouette of the plant seems to divide the surface in two: the dark and the light/bright part. I also like the bokeh effect and the contrasts.
