    Strange or not?

    So...



    und then:



    Question: where did the trees (in the background) go in the second picture? I know that it's probably taken at a different angle, but still...
    Anyone else find this strange or at least mildly interesting?

    Much different angles, the first is from down Main Street as can be seen by the hub and the second relatively close to the castle and pointed up. That is probably you main difference in the background.
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    Those trees are still there. Chalk it up to different angles. Here's a photo I found taken by PhotoMatt on 5/19/07 during the Pirates III premiere.

    Yup. Look at the top photo--you can see the Partner's statue near the bottom, and it looks quite small. The bottom shot seems to have been taken from somewhere on the other side of the statue.

    Photography 101: When you take photos, you can choose exactly how "zoomed-in" (telephoto) you want them. Counterintuitive as it might seem, taking a shot from far away with a telephoto lens is not the same as taking a similar shot from close-up. The perspective changes. When you're far away but shooting telephoto, the effects of perspective decrease--in other words, things don't seem to have so much distance between them, and their relative sizes are more accurate. When you shoot up close with a wide-angle lens, perspective is exaggerated and things that are distant seem very distant.

    The second shot is from much closer, with a wider lens, so the perspective is exaggerated. The trees behind the castle seem much smaller as a result, which hides them behind the castle.

    My guess is that the second photo is also much older by looking at the colors of the castle, which would make the trees younger in the second photo and had not grown near as tall as they were years later in the first photo.

    Is that my castle? I mean, that ugly looking castle, is that really Sleeping Beauty's Castle? When I see the castle now, it's so purdy!

    Eww...!

    You can see the trees behind the castle of the second pic... look in the gaps.

    Some of those trees were put in to hide the ugly tent top canopy of the Videopolis stage when it was indifferently erected in the 80's or 90's and ruined the castle's silouhette.
