On to the moon mountain! The picture of the day “Moonstruck” by clip81 reminds a commentator in the gallery of the fairy tale “Peterchens Mondfahrt”. And indeed: the scene with the big moon and the silhouettes of two people looks like a theater backdrop. Is this where Anneliese and Peterchen start their journey to the moon together with Sumsemann and a basket full of apples?
The long focal length creates the connection between the motif parts. It has a compressive visual effect, because even objects that are far apart are shown here with an approximately similar size. This is what gives “Moonstruck”, which was actually created at the Killesberg Tower in Stuttgart, its fairy-tale, surreal atmosphere.
The photographer worked with the Panasonic Lumix G9 Micro Four Thirds camera and a 100-400 mm telephoto zoom with the longest focal length, which corresponds to the angle of view of an 800 mm lens on a full-frame camera.
The photographers analoochjehtooch and Zika also prove how helpful long focal lengths can be, especially in wildlife photography, with their impressive bird portraits. All pictures of the day of the past week can be found in the following photo gallery.
