Images[edit]

The image at right strikes me as a better illustration: it shows the people-mover at Frankfurt International Airport. I thought there might be too much investment in the current image to attempt to replace it. What do people think? --Wetman 23:59, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

I don't want to toot my own horn here, since I took the airport photo, but the current image really doesn't illustrate this visual phenomenon too well. I'm sure we can find much sharper images than the one I took, but until someone does, I'm going to be a bit bold and include it the article.

A five vanishing point perspective illustration is needed. Barnabas Szabolcs —Preceding unsigned comment added by 152.66.83.7 (talk) 15:52, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Driving[edit]

Curves do not have vanishing points, only lines have them and they share with their parallels. The following text was removed, being unreferenced, and misleading:

Vanishing points can also refer to the point in the distance where the edges of the roadway appear to converge. Movement of the vanishing point can help assess the upcoming curves in the road. If the vanishing point moves towards you or to your sides, the curve radius is reducing, so speed should be reduced. If the vanishing point moves away from you or comes to center, the curve is straightening.

This Talk space is available for anyone that might want to discuss application of the Vanishing point concept to driving.Rgdboer (talk) 22:03, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
