What's a 'natural' field of view?
Do you make postcard-sized prints and look at them from (a) 6 in/15cm or (b) 12 in/30cm; or 12x16 inch/30x40cm prints and view them from (a) 12 in/30cm (b) 24 in/60cm or (c) 36 in/90cm?
Consider the angle subtended by the subject, at the eye, at the time of taking, and the angle subtended at the time of viewing the print. When the two match reasonably closely there is a particularly three-dimensional effect.
