Does shallow DoF look "realistic"? Don't think so. I've never noticed a blurred background in the real world.

You do, you just do not realize it.


No, you don't see it because even tough your eyes have limited DoF you brain does automatic focus stacking so what registers is deep DoF. your brain does a really good job of auto white balancing as well. You don't get to turn off the focus stacking or auto white balance, so it's kind of a stretch to say it exists, you just can't experience it... leads to a kind of an existential question. What is real when it comes to experience?
