Just another swan. Breaking the usual rule of thirds on this one

Just another swan.
Breaking the usual rule of thirds on this one. Normally, its a rule that i feel tends to make an image stronger, but in this case, i felt the centre placement with diagonals pointing inwards from the island on the right and the flash of red on the left gave a stronger composition.
Personally, I always treat these ‘rules of…’ as a guideline to composition rather than hard rules.
What other ‘rules of…’ do people tend to use and how stuck to them are you?
Thoughts?
