In this case though, Payne isn't the Eifel Tower and he isn't standing far enough back for it to distort. I would say having your arm around someone isn't enough to constitute someone is standing far back to distort a camera's perception of height. Exhibit B, refer to Podz & Payne's shoes and it's even clear in the photo that he's right next to Podz. That is enough for me to deduce that Coleman is taller.

Literally any difference in working distance to the camera will change to apparent height of two subjects. It doesn't just magically happen at some point. Since we are trying to discern differences of only an inch here, it doesn't take a lot.

You could work out the answer using Podz as a calibration reference provided you know his height, the difference on distances from the camera for the other two, and the focal length of the camera. This assumes level ground and perfect posture.

The Eiffel tower is in France. Larry Bird is from French Lick. Therefore, all of the players in the picture in question are better than Larry Bird.

If they are all standing different distances from the camera, then you cannot honestly determine their heights relative to one another. Those aren't my rules; that's just optics.

Or else the Eiffel tower is a lot smaller than I thought...

eh, you can find a dozen vendors selling those towers on the lawn. In fact, she might be one of them.

You have a pretty significant confidence, in two people separated by 1-2 inches, standing at different depths from a camera that makes that tent in the background look pocket sized.

That said - Coleman certainly looks BROADER which may certainly give the perception he is taller.

It’s nice that the program has progressed to the point that I’m pissed that we are projected to only finish 4th in BT and Sweet 16 and have a first team AA.

I would be surprised if the Illini finish as high as 4th in conference and make Sweet 16 if Curbelo is not on 1st, 2nd or 3rd team B1G.
