I wonder how the perspective in the pic gets so screwy: 450 feet high and 600feet long. Daredevil must be around 125 feet tall.
Look how close he is to the photographer, how thick the rope appears at the near end and how it vanishes almost entirely from view at the spire end. He's only a few strides from done, and that's what my artist brain is telling me is screwing up the perspective. Things like this were what gave the production teams their ideas for forced-perspective use in movies like the Lord of the Rings trilogy, where a specially-constructed "wagon" was used to make Frodo look so much smaller than Gandalf at the beginning of Fellowship of the Ring. They were actually sitting like 6 or 8 feet apart!
