9: Room with a view
When I saw this one in the book I thought I would have to find something to be seen outside the window. Little did I know that you had already supplied us with a view of where sheep may safely graze.

Re: 9: Room with a view
Since I thought I would have to supply the view I decided to use this photo I took when I was working for the County. The water is part of San Francisco Bay. Also the bike path that I frequently ride is down in the same area. The large buildings are part of Moffett Field.

Re: 9: Room with a view
The point of this exercise is to gauge where the horizon should appear in the view. Do we need to draw vanishing lines to find it? Not really; that middle bar on the window is almost exactly horizontal, so that's where the horizon needs to be.

In the first image you're looking down on the scene, and there's a possibility of misty sea blending into the sky beyond, so the horizon isn't visible.

But in the second, the horizon is at the base of the mountains - which means your scene is far too low!

Thank you, Steve, for your critique. I can see perspective is something that's still tricky for me. Here is the corrected view.
