Thank you Nuri, I don't have much choice as it is the only wide angle lens I own, so I have to make best use of it! As it happens, I think it is a great lens for the cost, very contrasty and my copy is sharp at most apertures.

Best kept secret, this lens! Nice shot and a strong conversion.
Best wishes,

Nuri is spot on, might be time to dust mine off

Wonderful old castle shown off to perfection, you've highlighted the circular keep very well
