Bell Towers

Hi guys!

I’ve been always enchanted by the imposing fascination of bell towers, especially by the churches one. I particularly like the photos taken from a low angle view looking up at the sky with the bell tower into the center of the composition. I know that for the photograpy basic rules the best composition is another one, the Rule of Thirds (human eye is naturally drawn to a point about two-thirds up a photo), but... I show you some examples! What do you think about this image? Is the No-Rule-of-Third-composition an additional quality or a lack/regret?

Ciao, Rob.

I also agree about not using the rule of thirds all the time, I like those pictures too!

I'm agree with you about the light. Yeah, I understand what you mean when you say "I ... would still like to see the building's feet", but sometimes we have need to look and aim high, don't you think? ;-) Thanks for your comment, Rob.

I wouldn't worry too much about the Rule of Thirds. Much more important to consider the light. Also I have noticed several images in the past few days where the buildings are not grounded...I like the low angle shooting up but would still like to see the building's 'feet'!
