Here's an old lightning shot, using a Tokina 400mm on my T90.
Hardly an epic shot, but it's one of the few that meets 'spec.'

I use a 200mm quite a lot.

I'm not much of a landscape shooter, I'll occasionally grab one while shooting something else (i.e. birds), hence a long FL landscape.

I've got a few from antarctica:

This one's a bit of a question mark as to whether I'd call it landscape. Penguins are sadly slightly out of focus (dangers of shooting from a moving zodiac at 400mm):

Of the particular style that you posted (layered landscape), or just landscapes shot with a long telephoto? I use everything in my bag when shooting landscapes, from 17mm all the way up to 560mm...all depends on what the circumstance or composition calls for. Which is why there is no such thing as a "landscape lens" (the multitude of those sort of threads notwithstanding)...eve​ry lens is a landscape lens. Telephotos are a good way to isolate parts of a subject/scene, compress a scene, as well as to use the DOF to your creative advantage if need be. The first was shot at dusk...100-400L @400 with a 1.4x for a total of 560mm, the second was shot at a focal length of 490mm, both with a 5D2:

Yes I do, I really like the compression of perspective that you get with long lens landscapes, I also like the way its possible to be very minimalist such as this!

Agreed. It's a nice surprise to find haze working to your advantage too.

More of a seascape than a landscape ;) - also taken while out looking for birds, @ 700mm. This bridge is 12.9 km long (about 8 miles) between New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, Canada. Pic taken from Cape Tormentine, NB.

Telephoto is great for making sunsets look like the sky is filled with color. My actual preferred main landscape lens is a 70-200/4, but longer lenses work too!

I'm don't photograph landscapes very much, and when I do it's usually between 100mm and 250mm. . But I do have several that fit your criteria of being taken at 400mm or longer. . They aren't your typical landscape photos ... but then again I guess they whole point of asking for 400mm+ examples is to see what types of alternative landscape images can be created, right?

Rocky Mountain Elk environmental portrait, taken during a brief snow squall, at 400mm on a 1D4, for an equivalent angle of view of 520mm. I kn ow it looks grainy or "soft", but it's snow in the air, not grain:

Moonrise taken at 400mm on a 50D, for an equivalent angle of view of 640mm. I wish I'd had time to switch bodies and shoot this with my full frame, but every second was precious because the moon was rising and "getting smaller" rapidly:

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

They aren't all at 400mm+ but quite a few are.
