    Cool Who says wide angles ain't fun?

    Thanks to Jedi who sold me his MINT Sigma 8-16mm f4.5~5.6 DC HSM Lens @ a very reasonable price; here's an interesting perspective of things around me.

    Errrr...okay. Well, I was having fun with things around and shooting with an UW but thanks for sharing your opinion. Next series will have great light, better composition and might even include a story.

    careful about the distortions, appropriate distortions can make great photos but inappropriate distortions can also breaks your photos.

    *hint: try not to overly used it on human subjects.

    I like #3. Next time try to take a step backwards to get more leeway at the edges of the image, than do a slight perspective correction in ps/lightroom. This way there won't be such an exaggerated "leaning-pisa" effect... in this case the HDB blocks in the background.

    That said, we should always notice the convergence of lines when shooting with such wide-angles whenever possible to avoid post-work. You can start by doing some kneeling & squatting exercises with a heavy D-SLR at home.

    Well, objects can work great in their own compositions.
