Hey guys,

I would appreciate a lot your critiques here. I've developed a renewed taste for wide angles and now I'm trying to improve in this field.

As you've probably figured out already, wides can have some issues with distortion and/or keystoning when things aren't fully squared, leveled & plumbed. Of course, that can also be helpful for creative purposes ... i.e. they can be a bit of a double edge sword at times.

That being said, your verticals are "leaning in" a bit, but I'm kinda diggin' how you've incorporated the vanishing point in one direction and the foreshortening and message in the opposite direction. Also, I'm kinda diggin' the uphill vibe from the downward tilt (which is likely leaning your verticals a bit @ double edged sword).

Interesting dichotomy, I can see the attraction to the cleverness of the scene ... how was the adrenaline for shooting toward oncoming traffic, as you got centered for your composition?

Thank you for your comment. Indeed, keystoning is something I've got to tame.

And regarding the oncoming traffic, you know that feeling when you put your eyes on the viewfinder, as if you were just a ghostly expectator of the scene? Adrenaline struck when I suddenly realized I was out of the scene for too long, and objects looked larger in reality than in the 24-mm focal distance :P
