Comparison shot of Elevated photography vs corresponding Ground Level Stuff.

Furthermore, in order to avoid converging verticals, the building takes on a more pronounced perspective effect when shot from below and the photo places nearly equal emphasis on the grass in the foreground.  Notice too how the elevated shot provides better context for the sign in the front yard and the parking lot along the side.
