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!!!
