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.

268th place
This is of cause only a small section of the Great Wall, China. I took it with my trusty Canon D60 and a cheap, yet not-that-bad Sigma 18 - 50mm. I was struggeling to show it in colour, it has nice greens and a deep blue sky, but ultimately I felt it is a BW shot, even knowing that colour shots normally have an easier time in competitions. Apart from BW convertion using the channel mixer in PS, the only other work was cropping it to 16:9 format.
