Underlining the arch with two linear wide beams seems to cut off the background pillars. The light follows arch inner side perfectly, revealing the corners of the architecture.

Another way to underline this architecture is to light it with two rectangular beams (2x4째/2x27째). The light follows the top of the arch more effectively.

The linear beams on the pillars in the foreground reveal the corners of the architecture. If we also highlight the pillars in the background, our perception of the architecture changes: we now perceive the arch as a three dimensional object. Moreover, the contrast between the two colors add to the perception of depth.
