This months challenge is a tribute to the super-W I D E focal lenghts. Posted images must be captured with a focal length on a DX body at 18mm or less, and FX or film body at 27mm or less.

Many photographers have a lens in their kit that goes to 18mm and often wonder what they can expect if they invested in a super-wide zoom like a 10-20, 11-16, 12-24, 14-24... Well the FOV (Field Of View) changes more dramatically with each mm at the wide end than at the long end. 10mm on DX has a diagonal FOV of 109 degrees, 12mm is 99 degrees, 18mm is 76 degrees and 24mm is only 60 degrees. This challenge will demonstrate these differences --- a picture is worth 1,000 words

The very wide end allows us to capture dramatic foregrounds, create powerful converging leading lines, wonderful cloud structure, and create great depth through perspective. One of the goals of this challenge is to create NAS for any landscape photographer that has not yet invested in one of these babies.

Rules:
--All images must be captured with FL of 18mm or less on DX and 27mm or less on FX/Film
--Post up to 7 images but only one image/post
--All images must conform to these guidelines
--Include location and shooting info so we can learn from each other especially the focal length
--Previously posted images are welcome
--When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post.
--Include a title in the subject line
--Anyone can post but only paid member can be nominated
--Capture must be shot with a Nikon camera and any lens
--Comments are welcome but NO public critiquing, i.e., how to make it better. This is a contest so PM's are a better way to offer feedback
--WARNING posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge will be periodically removed by the moderators

NOTE: Maximum posting limits are 900 pixels and 150kb

The top images will be selected by the previous months winner and be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. The winning image with be added to the Monthly Challenge Winners Gallery

Good Luck!!!

Nice idea, lots of variety expected.

I'll start 'narrow' with the intention of adding wider later. This is the third interpretation of my favourite shot from my first 'proper' attempt at landscape work - Bassenthwaite Lake in the English Lake District.

Originally shot Feb '07, when I had just my 'kit' lens and a cheap tele-zoom, but reworked quite recently after picking up some great pointers on the use of curves etc.

If you click the small image below you'll see the larger gallery version (1000px 116kb), in the same gallery you'll also find the original presentation of the shot, and one interim interpretation.

Anyway, enough babbling.

*As I said, this was early in my landscape shooting (indeed, early in my SLR shooting), and I have no idea why I was in S-priority - leading to the short exposure/wide aperture combo. Somehow it worked out though.

Dusk at Hyatt Lane, in Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains.

f/8, 1/10, ISO 200

-Comment 1: Some detail is lost from strong compression to meet the posting rules but I did not want to resize smaller than 800 pixels

-Comment 2: I was aware when I shot this that I was being lazy by not using my 12-24 lens to get a little more convergence of the lines.

Here is my W I D E attempt with my lowly kit lens. My birthday has past and Christmas is still a long way off. Thanks for the NAS infection Albert
I thought I should crop a bit off the bottom to make for a wider aspect ratio to help with the wide perception.

Thanks Rob. It's a single exposure. I used a little fill light in ACR to bring out some detail from the shadows.

Infrared Black Bridge Panorama, Santiago del Estero, Argentina

this pano is of a old and derelict rail bridge crossing the "Rio Dulce" in my city, Sgo. del Estero, Argentina. It used to be a very important bridge until 1950, when the importance of trains diminished in my country, overpassed by trucks as a means of transportation.
I wanted to bend the rails and create a 3D view of the scene by altering deliberatedly the straight lines.
It is a 180 degree mosaic pano, 2 rows of 10 vertical shots.
Nikon D70 ir converted, kit lens, 18 mm, Singh-Ray 2 stops ND filter, camera mounted on my RRS pano head. Ev. 125 x f8, iso 400.
The sun is also a very important part of the composition. It was a pano taken in summer, where the temperature rises over 45 degrees (in fact, I was sweating a lot, almost melting myself), thus contributing to enhance an image of desolation. In addition, the sun creates a diagonal shadow of the bridge and rails that, in my opinion, add an element to the composition.

Peterhof covers an area of over 100 hectares and has approximately 30 buildings and pavillions and over 100 sculptures. The Architecture is 18th-19th century and Peterhof was officially opened on August 15, 1723. It was the favorite Residence of Peter the I. This view from the deck of the Grand Palace overlooks the Grand Canal (otherwise known as the Sea or Samson Canal). It was an overcast day with spurts of rain. For some reason the fountains were not turned on when I took this picture and that is too bad as water would have shot out from the front sculptures and and center sculpture in the pool area and every one of those round objects down the sides of the canal would have shot water in the air.


This was shot hand held with a D200 with 12-24 f/4 DX lens at 12mm. f/8, 1/100, ISO 200.

A short bus drive from Goritsy is Kirrilov where the Monastery of St. Cyril on the White Lake is located. This monastary was founded in 1397 and by the 17th Century was one of the richest. Acording to Insight Guides, Vasily III the tsar of Russia in the early 1500s came here to pray for a child by his apparently barren wife. The following year she bore him a son who became Ivan the Terrible.

thanks robm for your opinion. ND means "neutral density" and applies to filters that are made for cutting light on the first half of the filter, leaving the rest of it transparent, with the purpose of matching the dinamic range of the scene. There is plenty of info on the web, just visit: www.singhray.com to start with or do a google search.

While on vacation last week (in Florida), I took this wide angle shot from my brother's dock, overlooking the barrier island that helps protect his property. Taken at 7:45 p.m. I left my Sigma 10-20 at home, so I used my Nikkor 18-200.

German Bridge IR Wideangle Panorama

This 1927 German Bridge is located in my city, Santiago del Estero, northern Argentina. The attempt was to make a wideangle panorama in which the shape of the bridge and the rails were altered, thus creating an artistic (and different) view of a current lanscape mark of my city.
I knew, by previous panoramas, that positioning the tripod would be mandatory to distort the shapes. Having known that and after checking for a long while the different approachs by looking through the viewfinder, I made up my mind to locate my setup very close to the left leg of the bridge, and very low to the ground, so that to capture the upper part of the bridge with the camera pointing at 45º.
The composition did the job: the front legs of the bridge come out unsimetric between each other, the rails make a turn to the bottom left corner of the photo, thus enhancing a dinamic composition where the eyes travels throughout the picture thanks to the its colocation and the shape of the bridge as well. In addition, carefull composition implied putting the rails to the left third and the paved route to the others 2 thirds left.
Last but not least, and infrared approach did the rest: I took advantage of the (very hot) summer light present to get the maximun infrared effect. I did not want that the sun introduces strong shadows, so I waited until noon to take this pano, so that no shadows distract the good shape of the composition. Another added bonus of the infrared approach is to look at the sky: puffy clouds add a strong contrast to a very dark (clear) sky. Last but not least: a background car at the end of the bridge contributes to add scale to the scene.

Tech data: Nikon D70 ir converted, kit lens, at 18 mm.
Mosaic pano of 3 rows of 13 vertical shots each row, rotated in my RRS ultimate pano head, tripod mounted. Circular polarizer was used to darken the sky, remove glare and to lighten the clouds. EV: BKT between 1/60 to 1/180x f8, iso 400.

hi Bob. Nice to hear from you in this thread.
I witnessed this superb image, since we both shared that magnific April's sunrise. Excellent job Bob.
I did the same like you but I have not processed the panos yet, since I am now delving into handling Capture NX2 and printing (a lot to study). However, my following step is to delve into HDR. I purchased Blotch's book so I am looking forward to handling it in the future.

Hello,

My first ever post so I hope I get this right. And not a patch on the others, but you have to start somewhere......

This was taken at the beginning of this month whilst holidaying in Beadnell, Northumberland. Spent quite a bit of time on this beach, and this boat was always there, so on the last day I decided I'd better get on and photograph it.

D200, Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G lens, focal length 18mm, 1/320s @ f/22

Best wishes, Cheryl
