Nice shots but way to narrow a field of view to call a landscape.

"Landscape photography is a genre intended to show different spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. This popular style of photography is practiced by professionals and amateurs alike"

Taken from that oh so wonderful source - wikipedia

So out of curiosity what would you call them? They're not portraits, street shots, macro, stills life, wildlife (well, i guess maybe for the cow shots), astrophotography, glamour, high key, low key, light painting... I could go on.

To me landscape seems like the most fitting description. Landscape =/= wide angle. I suppose you could argue a case for the term abstract but still.

To the OP - I like them. Landscapes with a long lens is never something I've had an eye for. I'm also always dissapointed how much atmospheric interferance over longer distances can ruin the sharpness of a photo. Your's look pretty good in this respect though at a quick glance.

If I must be pinned down, I would call them nice nature shots.
