On Zipper in the Square, rectangle, quadrat, trapezoid challenge (7 comments in total)

Thanks RJB138 and guiri.

These are the Azrieli Towers in Tel-Aviv, Israel. There are three towers - square, round and triangular, and I've shot this so the square and round towers seem to meet.
Not much to add in terms of technical info - D90 + Nikon 70-300@300 on a tripod in nice afternoon light, with added light from projectors on the buildings.

fisbensun - Thanks for your remark, I respect your opinion.
The rule of thirds is meant to avoid the situation in which the eye of the viewer is immidiately drawn into the middle of the frame, and stays there.

In this case you have the rays of light at the top, rock at the bottom, fishermen on the left and pole on the right, each tugging at the viewers eye, with the rays of light dominant enough to draw the eye to a rest on it in the end.
The horizon plays a minor part in this composition.

In the end, the result is what matters, and in this case people enjoyed it enough to give it a high score = The composition worked.

Yep, we had awesome light. though it was raining too... A drop here and there while I was taking the shot, and a serious downpour a few minutes later.

Thanks, Everyone!
This is on the shore of the dead sea, near Ein Gedi.
Note however, that this is an active sinkhole area, and therefore dangerous!
