Strong Vertical Elements and Divisions

On reviewing some of my images I suddenly realized that I often have a tendency to be drawn to make images with strong vertical elements to both frame and divide images into parts. This may also be due to a love of reflections - where this can be achieved as simply as including part fo a window frame in the final image. Or it can be because the scene is inherently vertical.

Here are some examples.......lets see yours.

Ladies Who Lunch by Life in Shadows, on Flickr

Prescence of the Past by Life in Shadows, on Flickr

Framed in Red by Life in Shadows, on Flickr

Skyline 2 by Life in Shadows, on Flickr

Spire and glass by Life in Shadows, on Flickr

And occasionally I will add the verticals to create a triptych which in this image somehow complements the buildings in the background.

And of course it can just be the buildings themselves that do it.
