Okay, why?

I know that I can see the flattening effect a long lens has when the print is viewed at 1:2 instead of its natural 1:4 for example it may have been taken at. The opposite is true for short lenses, a 1:1 shot viewed at 1:2 won't look "normal" to the viewer, it will appear to bulge in the middle.

Those seem to be relevant effects, and seem to be caused by the mis-match in the camera's and the viewer's angles of view.

What am I missing?
