The photographer manages to capture a certain mood that can affiliate the tower. With an impressive display of darkness and emotion of both Bruxelles, the sky above, and obscurity and darkness past the looming building. This could make the viewer think about the history of Bruxelles. The farther up you look at the top of the tower, the shadows could create an opposite feeling of security and bliss, but rather a dark attitude. The location of the picture allows the viewer to see from eye level at a distance, rather than flat and unrealistic. Instead of sharp vision allowing one to view all the details of the designs, it is a distant, naked eye feeling.
The photographer allowed the viewer to see a beautiful masterpiece of stone in an emotional way rather than seeing it as just a building.
