There really is no magic to it - I just know what a fisheye will do in certain circumstances.

(As you may know, I use Fisheye A LOT)

In this case I took position crouched low, aimed upward, pressed my back against the wall so as to include both the skylight and the two "doors" and waited for a moment with silhouettes in both.  I got lucky that it was one man and three women, clearly defined against blown sky.

5 for the dreamy surreal look of the landscape and 9 for the momentum in the photo.

The waving flag is the best of a sequence of three or four shots, in which the lesser photos have overlap between the flag and the buildings.  It's a question of picking your "decisive moment" from four options, after the fact...
