a lot of these issues aren't so much stuff you need to correct for in shooting UWA rather they are features you should embrace…notably "2. The river isn't that wide and the buildings aren't that small."… this exaggeration of depth is one of the appealing things of UWA photography.

It's a matter of taste, but for me the use of UWA means getting up close to things…. really close, exaggerating depth and using foreground as a key component of the image.

Ditto: get closer and remember foreground is everything. Make sure you have something that draws interest and that is clear and clean--a pattern, if you well--and a pattern that leads the eye into the background. Your shots are well on the way. Most people stating out make the mistake of thinking that wide means a way of getting everything in the shot.

My experience comes from shooting a Voigtlander 15mm lens on my rangefinder cameras.
