From any other viewpoint objects to the side in the frontmost picture plane will appear distorted to "natural" perspective.
Lines are drawn from the distance point to the marked intervals that divided the picture's frontmost plane and as each line intersects the side of the frame, the point of intersection determines the measurement of intervals extending back toward the horizon [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 2 OMITTED].
Depending on how far or how close the distance point is placed to the frame's edge and how high or low the horizon line is placed, the picture will appear to have either a great distance between viewpoint and horizon or a sharply raked effect, like a raked stage on which objects appear to be falling down toward the viewer, or a very low horizon, such that the viewer appears to be looking at a ledge that then drops down behind the frontmost picture plane.
