It is important to note that having read that article, you are
psychologically predisposed to believe it. You would get better information
on whether your results are what you think they are if you tried some
double blind studies. Put the image you cropped randomly next to the image
taken, and ask people which looks better. In addition, you could
intentionally crop an image to not conform to this rule - perhaps instead
to the Fibonacci Spiral - and ask viewers to rate the 3 randomly sorted
images. You would be the first person who conduct such research, there
seems to be more actual studies done to confirm this method.

The prediction would be that an image that is close, but not fully
conforming to the Diagonal Method would be more appealing without guide

Have fun. :)
