That's all I am saying...
And all I am saying is that there are reasons to stage a shot other than to replicate reality, so your criticism/comment seemed silly to me. Art is not constrained by realism (but RP chooses to be).

I don't know, but I strongly suspect Joey didn't create the shot with RP in mind. Rather, he created the shot he wanted, following his vision, and then tried to see if RP would accept it.
