Greg, I just love this shot; the skew of the wide angle lens plus the off-level tilt make for a dizzying image. Was it difficult for you to start "seeing" with the wide-angle view? This lens is on the short list for my next purchase when funds free up...

Hi Martin!

Thank you for the complement.

I like playing with angles, and in shooting this particular image I just thought it'd be fun to line up the left-hand side of the frame with the skyscraper and see where the image went and liked the composition so I just shot it. The details of the older art deco-designed building across the street just made it more interesting adding a completely different asthetic.
