Assume one sees the Eiff (just as an example) and take a photograph.

Is the photograph realistic if it is:

- a sharp and well focused color image?

- a sharp and well focused black and white image?

- an unfocused - taken with a wide angle lens?

- taken with a normal lens?

- taken with a telephoto lens?

- an abstraction, showing traces of the Eiffel Tower?

- an abstract image, where the Eiffel Tower is not recognisable?

Natural size! And 3D.

Did you miss an 8 out in that size?
