Three Point Perspective Looking Up

Three point perspective happens when you stand at the edge of a building and look up! Check out this photo of Big Ben, the famous clock tower at the British Houses of Parliament, by Peter Pearson. (See his original photo on Flickr, here) Notice how the tower seems to get narrower the higher it goes? And at the same time, the further edges of the building get smaller, too. The corner nearest us seems the tallest.
