I think that if you see some of the examples above you can see one of the techniques is getting really close to an object with a decent background to emphasize the foreground.

It seemed to me that the lens had more peripheral vision than my eyes do. It is pretty interesting.

Plus, you can take some interesting photos by angling the shot instead of straight on. Basically you can screw with perspectives a lot.

^^^ Great shots Jeff

Decided to try some UWA shots on POTC yesterday. Bumped up the ISO to 6400 so there is some noise but it definitely gives you a different perspective.

Not sure how I feel about the processing on this one, but I thought I should try something new...

Clicking the picture takes you to its Flickr page!

I like it!!!!! Black and white photos are something that I still struggle with HORRIBLY and this is one of those shots that hack me off so bad, because you make it look so easy! I love the sharpness of everything, the star effect on the lights, and the contrast throughout. Very nice!!

This was B&W by necessity, as I blew the sign even in my -2 exposure. I really struggle with B&W, too; I guess I just got lucky here.

Here's another:
