You know to me this doesnt really seem or count as an UWA shot even though it was taken at 7mm with the 7-14. It just doesnt look or feel like and UWA shot. I feel you could have taken the same shot with a longer lens standing back.

Thanks for beating my head in with what Yaelle is trying to get across.

With an UWA a lot of it is about getting in close and embracing the distortion. Some things that are large become small and some things that are small become large and in that way you generate a different view and perspective than you would see in normal life.

Once, again. Great visual examples of what you are trying to say.

I have to get comfortable with the idea that my photos don't always have to be about capturing reality. The desire to do so is what spurred my interest in photography, though. But that was because my photos weren't as good as reality. This is about making them better than reality.
