Super Telephoto Compression

Using a super telephoto lens compresses objects in an image, in other words it appears to bring distant objects closer together than they normally appear, in this case the cruise ship appears a lot closer to the sun, where a wide angle lens would have done the opposite.

Some times a wide angle lens is not what we want to reach for when doing a landscape shot, I don't get to use this lens (EF 300 f/2.8L IS) a lot due to its size, but I do enjoy using it for landscape work when I can.
