The rule of odds states that images are more visually appealing when there is an odd number of subjects. Having an odd number of objects (more than one) in your photo is a simple way of making it more dynamic. When you have an even number of objects in an image, like two, four or six, the brain tends to pair them up, hence separating the image into pieces and making it harder for the gaze to flow freely. But when you have an odd number of objects in a photograph, there’s always something left over, and the middle thing comes more into focus. The rule of odds particularly works with smaller numbers of objects, like three or five. Having more than five objects in an image will usually make the brain perceive them more as a group.
