Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve really been feeling the pain of the short zoom. Living in Alaska, I’m constantly surrounded by huge mountains. On the east end of town, they loom over you, feeling huge.
But when your maximum zoom is 50mm? The background shrinks, the foreground grows, and the effect is diminished.
Thus the other day’s image wasn’t quite what I wanted. Sure, it imparts information about the contrasts and how bright it was, but you lose the effect of the mountains looming.
