Specifically, things on different planes will "move" relative to other structures.
I am aware of the distortions created by different shooting angles and the use of different lenses.

But here is, again, what is apparently the original VFX model prior to last minute additions (signage, equipment [?] box):

And here is the color close-up that is supposedly a shot of the same and original VFX model:

In the color shot the photpgrapher has moved closer to the port side wall and logically the inner shuttlebay wall is now shielding parts of the embayments from our view.

But the long embayment is not nearly deep enough to enable the inner shuttlebay wall to possibly shield that much of this embayment (and to get this close to the "Warning Fire" sign), IMO.
Also, in the original shot the "Elevators" black direction arrow is outside the white text field while in the close-up shot it is inside the white text field!

Regarding the Jefferies sketches of the hangar deck I find it interesting that in the side view cross-section sketch the observation corridor has pairs of triple windows, while the stern view cross-section suggests only pairs ot two.

Almost looks like the shuttlebay model builders didn't know which one was the final word and went along with the suggestion of the stern view cross-section.
