Walt, the plume shot, it's iconic, or definitive or something, it is a shot I recall when I think about what ultra-wide can do.

I am also a bit bitter, I had a distant variant of that shot, but weak light and dark thin smoke only, couldn't make it work. And of course, nothing at all like your powerful composition anyway. So only a "bit" bitter.

Thank you! The ultra-wide defintely adds to the shot, makes the 734 look a bit longer in length also I believe.

Did you use a 10-22 on that? I have tried shots like that and gotten awful lens flare (on a 17-40/5D). What techniques did you do to avoid that?

Yes, that is with the 10-22. It does produce a fair amount of flare at times but overall it handles it quite well. Im not really sure I have a "technique" to reduce flare, I just try to move my camera around and that sometimes works. The lens hood works pretty well also.
