    First is a flickr unavailable sign. The second is pretty ok, it makes me want to crane my neck even though it's flat for some reason, and those bare trees always ruin winter photos. I would have chopped up the sky and included a bit more of the stairs on the bottom, it feels cut off.

    You need to invest in a 20' ladder or something. I hate that angle at 10mm, makes me sea sick or something.

    They're both composed exactly the same way--might want to expand on your use of the 10-20.

    I actually like the PP on the first one.
    The second one is too distracted by the ugly bare trees and the steps are cut off.

    They are nice pictures, but I agree...the distortion makes me feel a bit sick. Is there a way to correct the distortion in PS?

    Ah, very nice. I don't mean to say that the photos look bad. If you were going for the distortion effect, then great! I just don't like how it makes me feel inside :(

    1st one looks kind of cool
     
  16. it should also be noted that there was no sharpening done to these photos, for those looking @ wide angle options

    Just the sharpening that Flickr applies to all pictures not viewed at full-size. :o
