Challenge has finished
How creative can you get with the wide angle lens? Show us what you can do with lens sporting an effective focal length of 35mm or less. Remember to tell us what lens you've used (no fibbing) and on what body. Compact and SLR entries are welcome, but make sure the lens used has an acceptable focal length (check our Camera Database if you're not sure). Oh, and no borders! Good luck.

The extreme span and narrow-chord wings of this Global Hawk Block 20 surveillance drone intrigued me greatly as a wide-angle subject. I took a couple of shots straight along the wing thinking they would work well but somehow this oblique shot seems better - despite the annoying green box. The low-tech garden furniture under the plane's tail offers an interesting contrast with the sinister sophistication above!
