How to correctly size a person in a composite

Hi

Do you have any advice for correctly sizing a person placed in a composite? Imagine someone composited onto a bridge. How do I know how big they should be (if I didnt photograph a stand-in at the time of the shoot if the bridge)?

Regards

Peter

Re: How to correctly size a person in a composite

Anything you can use as a reference of scale is good. Anything you can in fact measure. You can consider a known reference point relative to the approximate height of the model. You may not know either one precisely, but I know I've only commented if something looks obviously way off. I know I can get closer with some reference guidelines than by eyeballing, so if I notice something right away just by eyeballing, it's usually significant.

You possibly will not know either one precisely, yet I know I've only mentioned if something looks clearly way off.
