    Went to New York for the first time at the weekend. Just used the 7-14mm as I'm addicted to it. Some would laugh at using it for street snapping but I love it.

    I'm not laughing. I'm turning green; wish I had that lens. Nice shots.

    Really great shots! I don't have this lens yet but I know I want it and I would shoot it just like this ....

    1st shot very expressive ....

    2nd shot captures a moment

    4th shot ... great perspective

    as does the 9th ....

    and the 12th has fab contortion ...

    Wonderful set, wouldn't have thought of using such a wide angle myself but you've used it to great effect! I don't think my NY pics have come out half as well :)

    No 1 is nice! I hope for your sake the young lady doesn't see what the lens has done to her legs or the guy in the check shirt won't have anything to worry about after all!

    ....and that little old lady is laughing at it all coz she's the only who's seen what you're doing !!

    Fantastic set mate, love it. UWA may not be a traditional focal length for street, but in your hands the 7-14mm makes an excellent account of itself.....again !!

    I take it you've found a replacement cap ?

    Nice shots, hope you had a good trip too!

    I really love what can be done with this lens with the right composition. It's a real gem, and definitely not something I would have seen the value in before hanging around here and seeing what other members have done with it.

    Great stuff man... I'm sure enjoying the familiar FOV.

    We're on the same page when it comes to the 7-14... at this point, it's my most frequently used lens! :eek:  :smile: Love it!

    Keep the flow going.

    Thanks for the comments all.
    Livnius, I had to stump up 30 quid for one in the end. At least they had one in the country. I've put a little hole in the new and put it in a lanyard as I don't to pay out for another!

    The more I see from this lenses the more I want one. Time to start saving, I guess! You captured a very interesting view of the city, nice!

    The man is smiling too.
    Perhaps she is a lesbian and they are looking on with lascivious lust.

    I feel a ZZ Top moment coming on.

    Hi, Hypnomatt:

    In your very first photo, do you remember if someone actually gave that old lady a seat in the New York City subway? :biggrin:
