Ahhhhhhh I can see how that would work now, kind of like the images you see of tiny sitting people with really big feet ;D It's all out of perspective.

Ah, I get it.  I too was wondering how you managed that, and whether or not you had fancy cropping equipment!  Brilliant.  You have fantastic colour in your photos too, do you have to do anything special to get that luminous quality?

Yeah, it's about lens types, focal length to get different perspectives etc... it's all about experimentation a lot of the time.

Ahhhh, the colours are down to the camera and lens quality a lot of the time, using Lightroom to increase the vibrancy a small part (5-10%) but bringing the brightness of the sky down is the clever use of off camera flash (to the left) and the sun (to the right) and a bit of balancing and lots of test shots to get the right combination.

This was probably my best photo I took in the caves at Wookey.
