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.

While camping with some friends in Lisbon, Portugal, I was asked to take a 'family photo' for them. While they were in their tent 'getting ready' I stuck my head in and took this photo. Only a wide angle lens, 19mm equivalent in this case, can capture a scene like this in a tent. Luckily for me my 'subjects' provided an entertaining composition. I love the contrast between the energy on the left with the calm on the right. Fun, fun, fun!
