My first foray unearthed David Tejada's musings on composition in his blog post, What makes good composition
What I like about this article is the way that David graphically decomposes the compositional elements in his photos, by selectively washing out different areas.
I did a little hunting around and found something similar for artists Composition - Understanding it - Using it by Larry Seiler.
What you might notice is that the principles are the same, but Larry uses a formal vocabulary for describing compositional controls.
Now there's a thought. Could we have a blog tutorial like The Strobist's Lighting 102 I'd love to do something like that only I haven't achieved anything approaching guru status... yet.
