Anticipated student responses

It is anticipated that students will eliminate 'low angle', as not enough of the context is shown, but a good reason given can earn credit. 'Eye level' is not the best choice for the same reason but, again, a good reason can earn credit. The preferred answer is 'high angle'.

High angle: Makes the characters look small and vulnerable; the castle looms over them.

Low angle: The castle looks threatening as it looms above them.

Eye level: We are reminded of the scary environment because we can see the expression on Sally's face and that she is looking over her shoulder. We can see the door open mysteriously as Barry raises his hand.
