I posted a question over at Yahoo! Answers some years back, and just recently received an unexpected, albeit interesting answer to it. Both question and answer below, if you can make sense of it...
Q - Does the distance in a mirrors reflection of an object affect the level of detail?
My question is, does the distance in a mirrors reflection of an object affect the level of detail? I probably haven't phrased the question as well as possible, so let me take an example. If you look at yourself in a mirror, is the level of detail you see (in the reflection of yourself) seen as defined by the distance between you and the mirror, or the distance between you and the mirror AND the distance seen within the reflection, in other words, twice the actual distance to the mirror?

The situations of the readability of all mirrors selection. each and every thing has faceted layers.
