I captured these arches (last week) from an acute angle to get this effect - Each arch is actually a wide space to walk through as you enter the Fort Worth Livestock Exchange! I have added an older image as a point of reference in the comment section.

Nice, I did the same thing with the Hermitage.
It is a bold move, takes a steady hand and the perfect POV to pull it off.
You make it look easy, Jeff.

It's a bit of an optical illusion too. Superb work, Jeff!

Well Jeff, I love both views but what you did here is so creative in the way you angled the shot. Really love the vertical look that your framing accomplishes, the the texture, the lighting and slight change in color. This is creative look sure does kick it up my friend.
