    It doesn't. Because this is a still photograph, no work is being done

    Is it because usually something in the distance looks smaller in real life but if you put something of the same size further away in a photo it looks bigger?

    I see, the width of the car is the same, but its height changes with the distance. Nice illusion, it seems as if the entire car is bigger each time, but it only gets taller.

        Nice, I took the time to confirm it, they indeed seem to be roughly the same size (I didn't bother to do an exact analysis).
        IN this case it's just the old Forced Perspective illusion. The brain uses all other cues to "size up" what it seems based on the familiarity it has with its environment and perspective.
        The brains automatically calculates vanishing points from what it sees, based on what it has learned, and the relative sizes of the objects along those vanishing points.

          What I don't get though is - shouldn't the car farthest away look smaller,not larger, like it does in real life?

            No, because though the brain "constructs" depth from the parallax differences between both eyes up close, in the far away distances it interprets geometric cues from the relative sizes of familiar objects it sees. This is because the further things are from your eyes, the smaller the parallax differences are,and eventually, they are visually undetectable, so the brain resorts to familiarity and geometry. In that way, it sees that the sizes of familiar things get smaller towards the center of the image, and so it interprets there to be a virtual vanishing point. The road lines are especially leading to the brain. Because everything in the image "assembles" such depth perception in the image, the only way the brain can "fit" those cars, in those positions relative to all else in the image, is by making them larger.
            All of this happens subconsciously and is beyond your control.

            Thanks, it's a very effective illusion, could swear the cars were different sizes until I measured them

            Yes, so did I!

            Yes if the size was actually changed, in the image the car is the same size while other things in the background are smaller, making it appear bigger

      But why does the furthest away look bigger?

    >But why does the furthest away look bigger?

    The problem is the use of the word bigger. The word bigger is a comparative statement. To say something is "bigger" on it's own is meaningless and only derives meaning when compared to something that is "smaller." So to make sense of this picture, the REAL QUESTION YOU MUST ASK is: what are you comparing the car to that makes it appear bigger? If you say the other car's you'd be wrong. What your mind is comparing the car to is the size of the road. So the true comparative statement that's taking place inside your mind is "the car is bigger than the road is" which isn't even wrong. The fact that it's technically "not wrong" is what creates the mindfrick paradox.
