Newcastle I

0377 - England, Newcastle, Angel of the North HDR

I am super happy, I now own the Canon EF-S 10-22 mm f/3.5-4.5. I have wanted this lens for such a long time; having always felt that the kit 18-55 lens was never wide enough for my style. So here is my first shared shot with the wide angle. This is the 'Angel of the North' sculpture found on the outskirts of Newcastle (next to the A1). The sculpture is 20 metres tall and has a 'wingspan' of 54 metres. I really wasn't standing far away from the sculpture and easily got it to fit in the shot. The slight distortion in the wings will be due to being slightly off centre. A three exposure HDR image processed using Photomatix and Adobe Lightroom.
