Nice!
It's not easy to get compelling compositions this wide, especially when there is no specific point of attention nearby.

Well done!

Great work!

I'm with Sjak on his praise.
I find it very difficult to fill even 24mm.

Lat year, I've sold all my ultra-wides for this reason. This spring, I bought a cheap Tamron 10-24m for Pentax (APSC) in order to practice again in UWA. It's not a perfect lens (far from it) but since it's a zoom, it's very good at getting a feel for the wider focal lengths. If it works out, I'll allow myself to get the Russar 20mm for my Leica Wink

I know that feel. I've already sold my 28mm and soon will list my 24mm.
I am however waiting on the arrival of Nikkor 20/4.

You see, I have a hope/theory: somewhere on the other side of the wide angle there is a lens so wide, it will make shooting wide great again.
I just hope it isn't wider than my wallet.

Not easy, I agree....I think that in these cases (wide compositions) is better ......to exxagerate, or to avoid.
To exxagerate, my preferred toy is the Voigtlander 10 mm. (linear, no distosion), better with some object at 30-40 cm. to guide the perspective...
All the best,
Sandro
