When I did some research for the wide-angle lens I was about to buy some time ago I ran into a picture like the one below and thought I would try it out as soon as I got the chance for myself. Of course I forgot about it but when a friend of mine had pretty much the same idea over on his blog I got reminded. The effect of the trees almost closing above me as they reached for the sky was enhanced many times over with the wide-angle lens set to its minimum focal length.
