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.

The effective focal length in the EXIF says 66 mm, but I used a 0.5x wide-angel converter, making the effective focal length 33 mm. Motion blur from the ice flow on the St-Lawrence river in front of the Quebec Bridge and the Pierre-Laporte Bridge. 8s exposure.
