    Vanishing points not on horizon line?

    Hello guys!

    I am working on understanding environmental design atm regarding to perspective for the most part. I screenshoted this one from a cool movie and tried to deconstruct it. From what I can see it is 2 point perspective with on main vanishing point being close to the centre of the image and the other one being of the page with slow convergence hence the horizontal lines being slanted a little. What puzzles me though is the convergence of the railing from the stairs which is way above the page(diagonal lines). How is this possible? I thought that the vanishing points are always on the horizon line. Any help is more than welcome! Perhaps a source on this as well(tried to google with no succes;()

    Many thanks!

    Study perspective. According to theory, all parallel lines converge into a single vanishing point, and for horizontal lines, this vanishing point is on the horizon. The railings are not horizontal, so their vanishing point is not on the horizon line.

    Thanks for posting an explanation on inclined planes.
    Do you have a reference for this. or did you cook this up yourself?

    It's from this book I posted earlier in another thread, not many resources explain this aspect much for some reason.

    I appreciate your helpfulness, but it looks like it's copyrighted material, so I am asking you to remove the link to the pdf from your earlier post.
