Oculus once more

One of the most important functions of a photo camera for me is the zoom options.
A good image usually consist of many details that each yield interesting compositions.
Certainly in architecture, every detail is important. Of course primarily for the structural architectural qualities of a building: construction, use of materials, building physics, functionality and other, but it is also essential for the aesthetic quality of a building.
I want to illustrate this with the three photos in this presentation. Three pictures of the impressive construction of the Oculus in New York (one of the most photogenic buildings I know).
The photos are taken from the same position practically in the same direction. Only the degree of zooming in differs.
This has resulted in three different impressions, each with its own character.
The main photo only shows the straight lines of the more or less vertical frames.
The 1st workshop photo zooms out a bit, which also shows the kink in this construction section.
The 2nd workshop gives a traditional photo with the overall image.
