One of the best ways to use wide-angle lenses is through landscape and architectural photography. It allows you to capture so much more of the environment than with a normal lens, and it's perfect for capturing large objects in an interesting way.  For this photo contest, we invited you to share your best wide-angle shots with chances to win a Portable Projector and more in the process.

Grand Jury Winner

"Great use of a wide-angle lens, shot from below the model, creating the illusion of very long legs, while getting the entire body in. It certainly looks like she is on the go, legs in stride, like an upside-down V, in a sense "leading lines" up the legs towards the body. One way to improve the image would be to remove no parking signs as it is a slight distraction to the eye." - Chris

Runner Up

"Stunning architecture, and while in most cases, it is good to keep the horizon straight, this is a great use of allowing the barrel distortion of the lens to add to the overall image - the curves of the structure and white lines in the foreground. The white lines in the foreground and the building all point towards the middle for good use of leading lines." - Chris

Runner Up

"Wonderful use of a wide-angle shot, when looking at the front door, your eye just wants to go up the stairs to the top of the structure, and back down again. Great use of leading lines with the stairs. One note of improvement for next time, where the edge of the power plant meets the edge of the image (on the left and right-hand sides), would be to have them meet both edges at the same spot horizontally." - Chris
