Look at the flaps extended! It doesn't full extended flaps down when you are landing. It is take off not landing. If this picture that plane goes landing and it would be collasped nose gears when too high nose up! It is impossible too high nose up for landing position.

Funny thing -- in order for the plane to get into the air, the pointy part in the front has to go up.
As usual, perspective plays a big role -- the main gear is off the ground and the aircraft is probably at the maximum rotation angle until they've established positive climb and retract the gear. Not that big of a deal....
