If picture 1 is real, why earth seems so small in picture 2 and 3?

Just do some trigonometry and see if the pictures are fake.
You know the size of the moon and the size of the earth and there distance to each other.
Make a simulation in OpenGL or Direct3D and you'll see if you can replicate those pictures by angle rotation and translation.
You'll be amazed.

They look like Smarties, especially the moon.

latest from nasa,

real?

i quickly use blender to test, using picture 4 as background image, it seems it is possible, depend on camera settings.

maybe it is all back to camera settings.
