Photo-realism

I’ve been having a lot of fun with the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone, and so here is another Hipstamatic image: my good friend Ken at the Only Cafe in Toronto. The photo is dark, not particularly sharp, and rather gritty. However, the lighting in the Only is not bright, and the pub does have a gritty ambiance, so in this case I think the image is more realistic, more true to the moment than a perfectly sharp, properly lit image would be.
