Is a monocular depth cue that results as parallel lines come together, or converge, in the distance.
Linear Perspective
is a monocular cue for depth that results when we expect two object to be the same size and they are not. In that case, the larger of the two objects will appear closer and the smaller will appear farther away
Relative Size
is a monocular cue for depth perception that comes into play when objects overlap. The overlapping object appears closer and the object that is overlapped object appears farther away.
make up monocular cues for depth perception: Brightly lit object appear closer, while objects in shadows appear farther away.
Light and shadow
Is a monocular depth cue in which areas with sharp, detailed texture are interpreted as being closer and those with less sharpness and poorer detail are perceived as more descants
Texture Gradient
in a monocular depth cue that is created by the presence of dust ,smog, clouds, or water vapor
Atmospheric Perspective
a monocular dept cue based on the speed of moving objects. We perceive objects that appear to be moving at high speed as closer to us than those moving more slowly or appearing stationary.
Motion Parallax
Is a perceptual experience in which a drawing seems to defy basic geometric laws
Impossible Figure
Named after it designer, shows that our perception of size can be distorted by changing depth cues
The Ames Room
Is a perceptual experience in which you perceive an image as being so strangely distorted that, in reality, it cannot and does not exist. An manipulating the perceptual cues so that your brain can no longer correctly interpret space, size and depth cues.
