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.

I went to Joshua Tree to take a startrail picture and arrived around sunset. It was very windy with a patchwork of clouds in the sky. I tried a long exposure to see how the clouds would look as they crossed overhead. I shot a startrail in the same area where the Arch was later.

Notes: I used my gitzo 3540xls tripod, Markins M20 ballhead and MC-36 remote shutter release. The brightness on the Arch is from the remaining light of the just set sun. I sharpened the image in PS CS3.
