Realistic low light shots?...

I've thought about this more than once as well. Even though our eyes have pupils that adjust to light, we don't autoexpose to the full extent a camera does.

What is tricky about it is, a photo never gives viewers the complete experience of being in the scene, and so it can be hard for them to distinguish between one that accurately reproduces a low light condition, and one that is simply underexposed. Maybe there has to be something else included in the frame that provides the clue: a time of day indication of some kind, a burning candle in the background, etc.?
