A lot of people don't like distortion in their photos. I don't mind. Sometimes I even like them. Like for instance here. The view through a wide angle lens makes the bridge look so massive and majestic, exactly the look I was going for :). This is of course it's the New Bridge in Bratislava, anybody viewing my photos regularly, has definitively recognized it :)
