    This was taken near Aviemore, Scotland with my 18-55 kit lens that came with my D3300. Really wanting a wider lens, but there is so many to choose from. In the second image you can see the loch an Eilen castle to the right on the loch.

    Very nice Mark. One of the downsides with a wide angle is it makes the hills appear smaller and loose a bit of drama, which you can see in your above shots. As the landscape is often quite hilly here I've taken to shooting panoramas at a longer focal length precicley for that reason. At below 24mm it's quite noticable to me and really if you want to retain perspective and the height shooting at 50mm will give closer to the human eye view of proportions.

    Thanks for the advice, I'm off to Oban/Isle of Mull and Loch Lomand in October, so trying to get practicing so I can hopefully get some decent images from the trip.
