Thanks, Pseudo.  Good post.  I do believe that most of us who have done this for a while subconsciously adhere to the rules of composition.  That Golden Ratio threw for a bit though.  Your explanation is reassuring.   ;D

And to make it even more unbelievable ... the comment was on food pictures.   :P

Food!  You're kidding.  I wish you could show us the image.

I wonder if Chefs use the golden ratio to plate up and make their meals look more appealing.  

The text is here:

- The composition of a successful commercial image needs to be clear and supportive of the image's main concept and primary subject. A good composition is one which does not limit the potential use of the image by designers (by being tightly cropped, for example). Engaging the classical rules of composition, such as the rule of thirds, the golden ratio or a supportive use of negative space may help you to produce good commercial images. You may visit the Stock Photo Utilities section of our site or the message boards for more information on how to produce stock-oriented images.
 - Poor lighting setup, poor contrast or incorrect exposure.

I'm pretty sure the image was accepted at iStock but not sure how to post an image?

lol, that's a little insulting.  It's not like you're young and green and just starting out.

The code for an image is [ img ] link [ / img ] but without the spaces.

If you are told to remove as much as possible of the white background than the rule of thirds is history on that photo...

Do you mean on an isolation?  If so, there's no need to apply rule of thirds to an isolation, as the designer can pluck out the element and position it on the basis of rule of thirds (if they wish to) in the layout they're constructing.  Also, if they need extra (pure) white space, they can add all they need by themselves.
