    I like wide-angle shots that are of subject closeups but have the surrounding environment visible. I'd guess this wouldn't happen much with a zoom because you'd probably want to zoom in more. Most of mine are with the 14 or 15. I'll post a few!

    • 17mm and wider
      [*]Subject within a few feet
      [*]Background visible

    15mm f8 BCL - Edge softness of this lens helps with the top of the photo, but hurts when the frog is in focus and still blurry

    15mm f8 BCL - This would look better cropped because I wanted the frog on the bottom of the frame but he needs to be in the center to be sharp.
