"Cropping/Zooming does not affect perspective" fallacy, distilled.

Here is an example of a two-point perspective image:

And here is a crop of it that makes for a one-point perspective image:

The reason for the confusion is simply that "perspective" has a different meaning in geometry vs. the one in art and graphics.

When discussing perspective of photos 99% times we actually mean the later whereas statements are like "Focal length / FoV / Croppping does not affect perspective" assume the former.

Thank you for your time and I'm sure glad this subject is now resolved forever.
