While this certainly does not apply to Pitchblack or JJ_SO, you have to know what you are doing to appreciate a wide angle. Most people think that it is for getting it all in - and it is certainly good at that. Where it really comes into its own is the ability to exploit perspectives and angles to produce an interesting image. Few people, including myself, really know how to do this. I think it is almost like you are using the lens, particularly the ultra ultra wide (say 14mm), to create an alternative reality.
