A Tonka toy truck in front of a vintage one using perspective. Considered submitting in sepia tone but the colors play off each other well and the similarities of the grills, wheels and dump beds are more evident in color.

Very well done. It took me a moment to pick up on "forced perspective." My first thought, and I hate to admit this, was "Wow, look at how real the red truck looks"

Nice composition. I thought the yellow truck is real.

Great perspective shot. They look "real" parked there!

These really look like they are right next to each other and the same size, but based on the looks of them I assume the near one is a toy and the other is a real, old truck. Good perspective!

Reminds me of a 'Father Ted' episode when he was trying to explain perspective "no Dougall . . these ones are small . . those ones are farrr away . ." but that probably just leaves you more confused : )

Very good use of perspective (or a truly huge Tonka toy), nice sympathetic setting, nice choice of colours.

edit for awful spelling

Wow, perfect perspective. Guess the background was out of your control.

Terrific sense of scale. The look life size, well done.

Excellent composition. I like the colours, but I was thinking if a reflector would have done the touch for the Tonka.

I like the angle of view here that makes the toy truck seem on scale with the real truck
