    After reading the thread extolling the virtues of the Panny 14mm I decided I needed to spend some dedicated time learning how to use it. I want a ultra wide angle lens some day so I decided I better learn how to use what I have first.

    I went on a 40 mile bike ride all over the twin cities and just took the 14. Would love any feedback.

    I really enjoy the photo of the kid on the single speed. The slight angle seems to work for that shot. I also like the second to last photo with the tree, only thing I think I would of changed is to get a little closer and point the camera a little more upwards to give it more of a dramatic scene. Nice job on all the photos tho. I am wanting to get a Panasonic 14mm myself sometime soonish.

    I think it wasn't learning but rather executing. Great series.

    Nicely done.
    For mine the 2nd and 4th work best in showing off the FOV of the P14.
    The last shot also demonstrates pretty well too how using something like a 16:9 crop can be really effective with such a wide FOV.

    They are all good. I like 1,2 and 6 the most. 1 and 2 have good visual lines, 2 has movement and human element, 6's low angle, tree placement and colors are very well done.

    I think you've got a great start. I love Nice Ride. I have to start doing this too. I've not shot wide angle before. My 7-14 should arrive this week, so I'm eager to start using to begin envisioning in a different perspective. I've viewed all the threads I could find with images to determine if the lens was right for me. So I guess I have a reference point. good luck on your further exploration.

    I like 1,2,4,5,6 - I think WA pictures need something in the foreground to give the sense of scale. In the last picture, for example, it's just the side of a building ... Could have been standing a mile away to get it.
