Sometimes the camera can lie right?

The screenshot below is from a story in today's Daily Mail titled "Puffing Billie: Toddler gets smoke in his face as actress mum enjoys a roll-up".

Pretty shocking huh? Take a closer look though. Look at the size of Piper's hand proportionally set against her child. It's massively out of proportion isn't it? Now look at the smoke, it's going behind the child's head, not in the child's face.

If I didn't know better I'd say the picture had either been photochopped (that is Piper is imposed on another shot), or Piper is actually much closer to the camera than the child and what we have is a perception trick going on.

What do others think?

I see the Sun has the same picture.
