I discovered this little glade with its wonderful sculpture in Bath's Botanical Garden the other day.
I asked my model, Gem, to strike a few poses while I ran the robot over the scene and quite accidentally it has produced a convincing optical illusion. To my eye, the image of Gem second from the right is *way* too small compared to the image of her in the centre. Of course she is closer to the camera in the centre so the image should be bigger - but *that* much bigger?
What is going on here? Is there some well-known principle at work eg converging lines making objects of the same size look differently-sized? Is it something to do with the stitching software? (Autopano Pro in this case, but the effect is present in the GP stitcher version too.)
