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.

To get this image I turned a conga drum upside down on the floor, then tilted it a bit to let the light leak in and illuminate the translucent head. The wooden slats radiate outwards.
