At 11mm and f11, everything in this huge vista is in focus. But one move to the left or the right and everything changes... drastically.

I'm only a few inches from this set of benches, and it's actually not easy to get just the right angle when the view is this wide. If I rotate just a little to the left or the right, the shot is filled with stuff I didn't want in the picture.

This photo of the marina near my home would look totally different if I took one step to the right. Just look at the other dock image!

One of the best things about a lens this wide is the ability to photograph a whole room. Realtors, decorators and anyone doing a lot of interior room shots will love this.

I had to sit on the ground to get this photo, as standing up it just didn't look right, showing again how careful you need to be with composition with a lens this wide.

Mixer Close-up: Getting close to something is a lot of fun with a lens this wide. It's focused at nearly the closest distance here. If I backed up and took a photo of the mixer head-on, it's not that interesting. SB-600, bounced off the celing.
