timberwoof recently gave me a tip about how narrowing the camera's viewing angle in SL can produce interesting effects. For the above screenshot, I narrowed it down from its usual 1.04 to a mere 0.19; the camera is actually quite far away, but it still appears as if I'm right in the foreground, and the little gazebo and house across the sea in the next parcel look like they're right in front of me, too (but then, compared to my distance from the camera, they are).

It's an interesting effect, and I may fiddle with it more; unfortunately, like so many things in SL, you cannot change it in a convenient manner (it's buried in your preferences instead of showing up e.g. on your camera controls, much less being assigned a hotkey or so). I wonder if there's any SL viewers aimed at photographers that remedy this and allow more convenient access to things like graphics settings, full camera controls, environment settings etc.
