Perspective is everything in Photography. A photographer can click an object as the central focus and make it appear larger than life.
This collection of photographs of majestic landmarks around the world do a great job of just how important framing, perspective and lighting are to a photograph. All of these photo pairs are of the same object, but the changes in perspective can make them seem more or less grand.
