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.

Walking around Central Park, I ran across these two terrific skateboarders who were all too eager to show off for the camera. Using my D2Xs I switched to the Sigma 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye and set the camera to Aperture Priority, SB-800 to TTL-BL and got on the ground under the ledge. As the kids jumped off, I pushed the camera under them, pressed the shutter and pulled it back just before they landed on it :-0 Most of the credit goes to the talented skateboarders
