Tokina RMC 17mm f/3.5 on K-50

Thought I’d revive this thread with some shots from a recent trip to the ruined Abbey of Cluny in Bourgogne, France. The biggest church in christendom before St Peter’s in Rome, it was sold as a quarry to a local entrepreneur some time after the French revolution, and taken down little by little with dynamite. Sic transit....
Even so, what is left is imposing. My newly restored Tokina 17mm did a nice job of capturing the dimensions, I think.

Looking down from the (former) entrance, the altar was situated some 180m further down, well behind the 19th century building in the middle of the frame...

Abbaye de Cluny, vestiges...


The south "big" transept (there were two sets of transverse naves) is the only part left in its former splendour...

Abbaye de Cluny, le grand transept sud


The vault culminates at 33 meters, a dizzying achievement in 1088...

Not "wide" wide but still wide... Chillingly cold and quite satisfactory

snow, five minutes ago, in my back yard. "after" and "before" images.
k-1 w/Irix "Blackstone" 11mm f/4.0 w/flash; corrected for distortion, & cropped.

I'd be interested in comments, particularly as to the apparent clouds. I thought the blob on the right looked like "The Entity" from the Star Trek episode in which marooned spaceman Cochran falls in love with a disembodied energy blob.

Btw, the shadow on the snow immediately in front of the camera in the "before" picture is that of the lens, itself, as I was using a hot-shoe mounted flash attachment to illuminate the snowflakes. In other pictures I'd taken without the flash, the snowflakes were dark gray which made it look as though I was being pelted with flying gravel.

I just acquired a couple of days ago an " experienced " Sigma 10-20mm F3.5 EX DC HSM

to go along with my HD Pentax-DA 16-85mm F3.5-5.6 ED DC WR, SMC Pentax-DA 15mm F4 ED AL Limited, SMC Pentax-DA 21mm F3.2 Limited, Kino Precision Japan Kiron 28mm F2 MC P/KA and SMC Pentax-DA 35mm F2.8 Limited Macro lenses

so I am eagerly looking for any and all hints/suggestions on using " wide angle " K mount lense in " traditional " as well as untraditional ways.

[ even though my K 3 and K 3 II crop sensor does affect my lenses' field of views ]

I am hoping you folks are willing to share your knowledge, skill and experience

thanks

I got a moderate zoom, 20-50mm, for walking around town with, and recently acquired the 11mm Irix "Blackstone" thinking I'd be doing landscapes and stars. What I didn't realize is how neat an ultrawide can be on otherwise ordinary subjects. Witness the cat; no question about what's the subject of that picture.

here's a first attempt at stars. smudged a bit - could either be because I exceeded the camera's "astrotracer" time limit or because the gps wasn't calibrated sufficiently, I guess. Taken at about 4:30 this morning, temperature= 3 degrees - camera worked fine, though I didn't let it get thoroughly chilled prior to going outside as I usually do in order to avoid thermal distortion caused by internal parts shrinking at dissimilar rates.
