In fact, in theory, almost all the images in an encyclopedia should be
of this type (I say "almost" because there will also be images which
are there for the purposes of talking about the image itself).

Unfortunately this is only the theory, and not the practice, and we
get pictures winning picture of the year which are altered from
reality in order to be more aesthetically pleasing.
