Lens-ArtistPC-165-Going-Wide

~~~~~

~~~~~

All images were taken with…

Camera: Nikon D90

Lens:  Sigma 18-253mm

Focal Length: 18mm

Dubai’s, Burj Khalifa.

***

On the 148th floor is the

public observation deck

from where the following set

of images were taken.

Focal Length: 250mm

At 250mm we are looking at part of a building,

the size of which can only be estimated.

 

Focal Length: 52mm

At 52mm it appears reasonably tall

and on par with its neighbours.

Focal Length: 18mm

At 18mm we can see that the building is

of average size when a

neighbourhood comparison is made.

However, we can also observe that all

of these six buildings are comparatively tiny

when we take in the height of the camera.

The arrow indicates building

in the first image.

Looking up to the top of the Burj Khalifa.

Can you see how the concrete in

the middle foreground of this image,

(bottom) looks a bit like a kidney bowl?

My first image…looking up…was taken

while walking along that area.

A giant bicycle wheel?

The London Eye could be easily mistaken for that.

 

Ben does not appear that big from atop the Eye.

Auckland’s Sky Tower…

…where we gathered for dinner to celebrate our

daughter-in-law’s birthday, a few days before…

…No 1 son wed an Auckland girl…D-in-Law#2.

All that aside, whether day or night

the Sky Tower

provides excellent views of the

Auckland Harbour Bridge.

Burj Khalifa…the largest/tallest building

I have ever been in.

An elephant’s ear…rather larger

than any other ear, I have seen.

However, those ears look right at home

on their owner.

The Burj Khalifa is the largest subject

I have ever photographed.

Although a large elephant it barely makes

the medium category of my photos.

My smallest subject…a dung beetle.

 

Small, medium and large.

All images shot with a Nikon D90 DSLR

fitted with a Sigma 18-250mm lens. 

I have included the 35mm equivalent for comparison.

Marvellous how a lens can manipulate distance

These images capture from

the Burj Khalifa’s 148th level.

Focal length 22mm. (equals 35mm eqiv)

 

Same scene…focal length 52mm. (equals 83mm eqiv)

 

…and with 250mm focal length. (equals 400mm eqiv)

The Eiffel Tower 324 metres high

appears taller than it is..

However standing at 828 metres high

Dubai’s

Burj Khalifa

dwarfs the surrounding city.

From the viewing area in the

Burj Khalifa Tower

the Dubai Mall Fountain

is barely visible.

And yet those buildings are

four or five stories high.
