Now look closely at the boat in the bottom right corner. See it?

Then let’s replace the wide angle lens with a 200mm telephoto lens on a crop camera (meaning, 320mm effectively). And aim at that boat.

Now I get a very different shot:

That difference should alert you to the fact that a different lens gives you a different world.
