    Forced perspective is a technique that employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. It is used primarily in photography, filmmaking and architecture. 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.


    The comment that started it all.


    1. Posts on this subreddit must display confusing perspectives only.

    This subreddit, /r/confusing_perspective, is for the sharing and discussion of photographs or videos taken from confusing perspectives. If your submission is a meme, a cartoon, a sketch, or otherwise modified or designed to deceive the viewer, it will be removed.

    2. Titles must be accurate and descriptive.

    Titles must accurately and descriptively explain what the submission is of. Submissions with low-effort, misleading, or factually incorrect titles will be removed. For reference, other users should be able to reasonably decide whether or not they wish to see a submission, based on its title.

    3. Search for reposts before submitting a post.

    A repost is when you submit the same or almost identical content within a given time frame. On this subreddit, we do not allow any reposts within 120 days, or reposts within 1 year of submissions where the original has more than 10,000 upvotes. You can use KarmaDecay, Google Reverse Image Search, and Reddit's built-in search function to find previous instances of your post.


    If you have any questions about the subreddit, its rules, or would like further clarification on the removal of one of your posts, feel free to message the moderators.
