Capcom's Lost Planet 2 was released on 11th May - and it was BIG! We asked people to take a picture illustrating BIG! for your chance to win this amazing u00a32000 prize package. - Competition now closed, but you can still view the entries


Win a Nikon D5000, Canon printer and Apple Macbook in our great photo competition, in association with Lost Planet 2.

Capcom’s Lost Planet 2 is big. Big bugs, bigger aliens and even bigger battles. As part of a four-man team sent to seize control of a changing planet, the game pits man versus beast in spectacular fashion – with awe-inspiring vistas playing host to a range of spectacularly fearsome foe.

Remind yourself it’s only a game. Or is it? Capcom wants to find the best real-life photo which plays with perspective to create the illusion of size.

Our competition asked for photos which played with perspective, ones which marry a large depth of field with playful composition to create objects out of proportion. This type of photo could be captured with anything – a mobile phone camera, or top of the range SLR.

Take a look at our Forced perspective guide to for more information.
