Simply stated When you use a slightly telephoto lens and put the images together it would be as if you handed your viewer a pair of binoculars and let them observe the composition from 50 to 100 yards ‘back’. Vanishing points are now more apparent, which draws the eye through the subject matter and proportion has been curiously (and scientifically) preserved throughout the horizontal sections of the composition. A tree on the left side of the composition is now the same size as a tree on the right side. You see a tree in the middle and it is in proportion and scale to its surrounding elements. At one glance there is attained a curious continuity.
