Forced perspective is when objects interact or appear to interact with on another to produce an illusion.
experiment with making the field of depth greater or smaller. Move your subject closer to the object and then farther to see how the changes affect the shot. You may find that your original concept was not effective or over-the-top. Often, what you originally thought was "it" turns out later to be a dud, while another shot looks much more like what you had imagined.
