The Eiffel Tower and Leaning Tower of Pisa are two of the most iconic places for tourists looking to take what are known as forced perspective pictures. Youve definitely seen them before. They”re the pictures where it looks like someone is holding the Eiffel Tower in their hand, or propping up the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Forced perspective employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. This how they used to make old monster movies, but the technique can also be used to create some great photos. Somehow though the best forced perspective shots always seem to be vacation photos. Here are some of the best ones we found:
