Again I say . . Rules are made to be broken, especially in photography where everything is personal and subjective. For this image I totally ignored the “problem” of converging verticals because I felt that in this image they contribute by accentuating the soaring height of the huge pillars and arches. I used a 10 – 20mm super wide at the widest end and angled the camera upwards to exaggerate the look even more.
I wish you all a very happy Christmas as well as peace, prosperity and plenty of ‘keepers’ in 2014!
