Oh, well put, Sinequanon. And well illustrated, too. I quite agree.
Miranda F & Sensorex, Sony A58, 5d, Dynax 4, 5, 60, 500si/600si/700si/800si, various Sony & Minolta lenses, several Tamrons, lots of MF primes and *far* too many old film cameras . . .

While using a UWA for landscapes, do you tilt the lens to get more fg in the pic or just go lower? Tilting obviously will have a different effect than lowering.
I recently thought of this and studied a few landscape pics and tilting introduces a strong perspective exaggeration compared to holding the camera straight.
Want to know your thoughts?

Obviously, there is no right or wrong answer. There are all sorts of ways to use a UWA. It lends itself, IMO, to more artistic interpretations of a scene, especially when shot vertically, pointed down and very close to an interesting foreground subject like a flower, etc. If you want purely documentary shots, then keep it level at "normal" height and shoot horizontally but even this technique, while quite "conservative", yields an image quite different from what the eye sees (e.g., the background appears much more distant than seen with the human eye/brain).
