Wide Angle Take One

Here a few photos I took with my new Canon 10-22 super wide-angle lens. On a 1.6 crop camera that works out to 16-35. It's the widest lens I've ever used, certainly not applicable for all circumstances, but very nice in certain cases.

As I often do, I went down to Maxwell Lake to try things out and am pretty pleased with the results my first time out.  (Actually, the last photo is due east of Lindsborg.)  There are a few more images on Flickr.

I didn't shoot the requisite 3 images per "take" as I usually do so I can perform HDR processing.  I just wanted to focus on using the camera, and not do anything extra.  Well, of course when I got home I wanted to see these shots in HDR; I think Photomatix did a reasonable job of faking it with just one source image!  There was a bit more noise compared to the 3-image versions, but overall, I like these shots (especially the middle one.)
