Default Breaking the rules

This is a picture of three openings on a building which is 30 meters high and maybe 60 wide. This huge side wall has these openings used to bring light to indoor car parking on each floor.
I was standing fairly close to the building, pointing my camera up (some 75 degrees from the ground level). At first i thought the picture was "cute" but I had some strong feeling about it.
I tried to make nice composition, but as I'm only a beginner I couldn't recognize a good angle. Ok, I said, pick the weird angle and go! I think it worked Commments appreciated

That's a really good one, Zuhdo.

Good eyes.

Only thing I say is that maybe leaving some more wall parts around the corners would better the image.
Vertical Perspective Correctiion in this particular case is a personal taste.

Hope you don't mind if I show you my personal interpretation :

you took a huge step taking this picture. No "beginner" would look at that and even think of taking a picture. gj

The red color contrasted with the black provides a lot of impact that grabs your attention.

Sergio,
the remake is great except for a small detail, the leftmost window is distorted a tad too much because of the correction applied. The window seems a bit non-rectangular. Still, wonderul re-interpretation.

Aloha

Definitly right, selvin.
However that distortion does not come out from the linear transformation I have applied.
It is the original distortion of lenses.
Setting the first window vertically has made this much more noticeable ( try to put some straight stuff on the screen very near to zudho's original shot and you will notice it as well ).
In order to try to correct this problems one coulf try to apply the Distort\(Spherize, Pinch, Shear) filters , something I haven't done in this shot

WOW, thanks for comments (especially thanks to Vito for very encouraging comment) Sergio, I like what you did, basically, looking at your version one can immediately realize that it's the picture of three openings on the building wall It's more architectural than mine.
