I have only done a small amount of wide angle lens shooting. I just purchased a 14-30 f4S lens for my Z6 from a seller on Fred Miranda. While I am waiting for it to come I would love to see your favorite wide angle shots and hear of your wide angle shooting tips. I have always been challenged with the distortion and not knowing how to deal with it. I have very few that I like that I have done, but here are some to get the thread started.

Temple in Salt Lake City. I kept the perspective distortion because I liked it.

Brooklyn Bridge. Probably not really a wide angle because it is on a DX sensor.

Mesa Arch, Canyonlands. Taken with a wide angle lens, but near the longer end.

Great idea. Here's a few, not great, but great memories for me. I believe all with D850 and the 16-35 f/4.0.

1. View inside and out of our Airb&b in Brussels.

Leading lines are great. My big fault is framing everything too tight, or I get fixated on a strong foreground. And when I correct for distortion (Dxo does a great job!) I loose some of the image, usually at the top.

We stayed the the same airbnb in Brussels this past June!! Near the Jacques Brel statue. A bit noisy at night with the nearby bars and restaurants but the rooftop was nice.

The rooftop was fabulous! Great place.

I didn't go through my catalog to determine which images I took with my winde-angle zoom but I always remember this image taken in the geothermal area of Hverarond in Iceland.
18mm effective full-frame focal length

Just now remembered this one: Devil's Golf Course in Death Valley. If I remember correctly, the mountains in the distance are about 5 miles away and the foreground stuff is about 5 feet away.
19mm effective full-frame focal length

Good to know that you should leave a little room around the edge for distortion correction.

Terri, my biggest tip for wide angle not mentioned yet, is to use big skies! Number two is consider 2:1 ratio crops too. Taken way back in 2002, CP5000 with wide angle adapter. Best wide angle compact 5mp camera ever for traveling and wide angle landscape shots.
