    That's what I was thinking Tex. Not sure if it was possible to use a longer lens, something in the 50mm range? The one thing I don't care for as much with shooting people shots with such a wide lens is that arms and legs typically get distorted to look much larger then they are. Like in this one, the girls leading left arm looks like twice as long as her right arm in the back. At least for me, it's something that jumps into my mind. :eek:

    Jim - I understand what you are saying. I was attending a workshop and just doing what professional photographer, George Simian, instructed us to do. Hopefully, many of the other images will look better. Many thanks.
