Another thought has occured to me... (and yes, it did hurt)

Using virtually just the 20mm prime for my fine art work, I've benefitted by it helping me to develop a style. I'm really not sure this would have crystallised so quickly if I'd used a zoom...

I consider the exaggerated angles of the 20mm FL as part of my 'photographic signature'.

I'd be happy with just a 20 and 35mm prime (although my wife would laugh if she read this).

So what came first, the style or the lens. I can teach the basics of composition but style comes within each of us. Re your fickr I see the first "as an ok photo", but as I look at the rest i see a pattern & story which reveals the photographer. Very well done.
