Duh - no, mattja - I've never heard of that. Do you understand what perspective IS, mattja? The target you're looking at through your peep isn't really the width of your front sight post - it just LOOKS that way because it is further away from your eye. Objects that are FURTHER away look SMALLER. NOT BIGGER - like the three men who are FARTHER away in the pic. Good try at flaming me - better luck next time. [grenade]

Hmmm, it does seem that the ones in front should be the larger. It may just be an optical effect produced by that particular lens.

It's just the joy of a telephoto lens. The guys are all so far away that the diffeence between the front & rear guys isn't enough to make them look bigger/smaller. Your brain expecting the front guys to look bigger and not geting it, makes them seem smaller. Optical illusion, IOW.

The problem that I see is that the soldier in the foreground is wearing a pair of cheap, Chinese-made boots from K-Mart. [:)]

My point exactly. The group isn't that far aprt from each other and the camera is looking down at them. Also I bet the fact the guy's wearing a skirt so you can't see his legs makes him look like hes hovering

On my screen, The soldier in the front is 3 inches and 5/8 and the rabby in the back is 3 inches and 1/8. Everything looks ok to me !!! kid223

Tate, I just don't see it... The perspective is from a pretty high angle, skewing the heights of the men with the distances between them. The size difference is minimal since the people are not more than a few yards from one another, the men in the background not appearing larger, just taller, because of the camera's height. Don't ever become a pilot, OK? [;)]
