Post your UWA photos

Unread postby bakubo » Mon May 30, 2011 7:47 am

The recent thread about ultra-wide angle lenses inspired me to start this UWA photo thread. Let's post some UWA photos! Let's define UWA as <= 20mm on FF and <= 13mm on APS-C, but no fisheye. Feel free to post your UWA photos here.

I took my Sigma 10-20mm out a couple of times over the weekend and here are a couple at 10mm.

Hi Henry - great thread idea :D

Two nice photos to start. I particularly like the second, the way the lit back ground contrasts with the shady foreground looks great. There ia almost an IR quality to the shot.
Nex 5, Nex 6 (IR), A7M2, A99 and a bunch of lenses.

Henry, that's not fair. Most of us do not own a lens with less than 16mm (APS-C) focal length.
I guess I have to borrow Armen's Rokinon 14mm... but hey this too is not eligible... :roll:

I like using UWA in museums for that 'fit it all in the image' effect / taking shots at funny angles

a55 using tamron 10-24 at 12mm

Reading Museum Art Gallery (berkshire UK)

This shots been done to death at my local camera club (and elsewhere I suspect) but I still like it - a shot from the viewing gallery window at the British Museum in London

NEX3 with 16mm Prime + plus UWA adaptor = approx 12mm again

Image

and finally, a handheld low light shot using the a55 / Tamron again at 10mm - looking at the shutter speed (1/2 sec), I think I rammed my self against the wall and made several attempts to get a fairly sharp shot but I could be wrong and this might be a composite 'twilight' mode jpeg

PS - I really like the second tree shot henry, theres something about the way the root leads me into the photo starting at the bottom left, up the trunk and out across the branch.

Some interesting and very nice shots guys, I don't have a UWA so I can't participate.

I guess 14mm on APS-C is close enough. :D We'll be waiting for your post.
