The Death Star correctly scaled, looming over Florida.

Perspective is always a good thing.

YouTuber, Kevin Wisbith, has been creating videos that take large things (like skyscrapers, Space Shuttles, extinct animals, etc.) and placing them in scaled pictures of other things. The results are fascinating and fun.

He recently shared some of the images he created on Imgur. Check out a few of our favorites below.

The exercise also seems like it has great potential for a class project that utilizes tools such as Photoshop (or Pixlr, an web-based free Photoshop-like tool) or apps like Photoshop Mix that let you superimpose photos on top of other photos.
