I have no true wide-angle lens. I am mainly into bird photography (with a telephoto) or close-ups (with a Macro). I have occasionally used the wide angle of my 16-85mm zoom. So I am always amazed at the depth of field achieved in shots like this.

Great perspective and sense of depth!

Five air horns, that close. No wonder you had a fright, but the photo must more than make up for that.

Sometimes you can hang in a little too long trying to get just the right angle. I've done that also. Nice bright photo.

Having ringing in your ears and a headache doesn't prevent you from taking pictures, right? Nice job.
