Rule of Thirds

In these images, how I used the rule of thirds was I tried to the objects at the intersecting points and not in the middle of the image. The first image uses only one long object that is on the right side of the picture using the rule of thirds. The second photo also has the object from the first picture and there is a second object that is not as long and it is at an intersecting point. I thought that these pictures could have came out more interesting if there was more to the background.
