I'm not complaining about your assessment, Andrew, and I see what you mean. All I can do is assure you that in both cases I was sitting, and I don't think I've been growing taller since the first shot. I don't remember, but it's quite possible that in the first case I was sitting in a booth with a fairly low seat. I remember the second situation. I was in a booth then too. I just looked up the exif for the first shot. I used a Nikon ES400. That was, I think, a 5 megapixel point-and-shoot. The lens was zoomed at a 35mm equivalent of 28mm, so obviously I was in very close. I don't need the exif for the second shot. I remember it well. I was in a booth again, but I was shooting with my E-P1 and a Summilux that's the equivalent of 50mm on a full-frame camera. I think that's part of it. But the other thing is that the bar in the first picture is raised quite high above the tables and booths, so I was shooting upward, close in. In the second pic the target booth was at the same level as my camera. So, yes, the first one looks as if it's from a lower point of view. That's just the way geometry works.
