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.

One of the less known places in Bratislava, yet in the very city centre, but hidden out of the main tourist areas... I wish I had a fisheye...

Taken: Monday, 20th October, 2008
Focal length: 10 mm
Shutter speed: 1/25 sec
Aperture: F6.3
ISO: 100
Notes: The scene had a very big dynamic range, so the only way to capture highlights and shadows was a HDR. Hand hold three exposures: 1/400, 1/100 and 1/25. No crop (beside the little crop necessary for matching the images for HDR). RAWs processed in ACR 4.2 and PS CS3. HDR made in Photomatix 3.0 and finally finished in PS again. I did not want do overdo it, as some HDR images with the unnatural, artistic look. The camrea was placed on the ground, with my hand just tilting it upside. It took some time
