Monday Challenge

By mhaseman
Hi Everyone,

This week's challenge theme is 'Forced Perspective.'

According to google: Forced perspective is a technique that employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. It manipulates human visual perception through the use of scaled objects and the correlation between them and the vantage point of the spectator or camera.

Sounds technical but it's really not.

Think about it for a minute... take an object like the Spam can, or something or somebody you can find around the house (or in your hotel room) and make it (or them) look bigger... or smaller... related to something else.

I'm sure you've all seen pictures of people with the Eiffel Tower looking like it's perched on the person's head.

Rules and details posted here in the forum thread.

Enjoy. I'll post a 'Time's Up' mod in an hour and then I'll judge the winner. Good luck everyone.

Cheers, Martin

Hotel room, whoever do you mean?

I am indeed in the Holiday Inn Express (again) this week, but I'll try and have a go if the connection lasts.
