This group is for images of; photography, art, 3D abstracts. Perspective in an image relates to:

* "lines" [horizontal, vertical, or, on an angle] leading to a vanishing point.
* "size" [a person standing against a tall building]
* "depth" [3D aspect]
* "scale" [aerial photography, panoramic view, surreal art]

There is a focal point (main subject), a vanishing point (a point where all lines meet) or vantage point [a position where artist or a photographer takes the image from (from above, below or, one of the angles)]. There can be more than one of vanishing points which can be visible or, invisible. The clever use of already existing lines in photography will take an observer's eye to that focal point (usually placed in foreground), indicating distance, size and scale of things in the image.

Perspective also means one's point of view. In 2D images it also includes tricks artists or photographers use to create surreal art. So, these images can also be included in this group.

"Perspective is an art technique for creating an illusion of three-dimensions (depth and space) on a two-dimensional (flat) surface.Perspective is what makes a painting seem to have form, distance, and look "real."
