I've never made friends with a lens as wide as a 21mm-equivalent before, but I sure am having fun with the Fujinon 14mm. I just keep playing with it. It hasn't been off the camera since I got it.
Doesn't the green exit sign just make this pic?
Another observation: non-Retina MacBooks are darn hard to use for correcting photos. A slight tilt of the screen throws everything off. Why didn't Ctein tell me to get a Retina screen laptop no matter what else I did?
Oh, right. He did. Never mind.

Alex: "The Nikkor 20mm is a lot of fun, too. If they had made an equivalent for their DX bodies I'd still be using a Nikon. Switching to Micro 4/3 was cheaper than buying an FX body."
Manuel: "Errors in correction due to screen inclination are not exclusive to Macs. It used to happen to me and I use an Windows-operated ASUS laptop. That was until someone alerted me my pictures were getting too dark. I became much more careful since then. One of my cautionary measures was learning to trust the histogram.
"Now about that picture: it's great. And the green exit sign does make the picture. Yet I can't help thinking how great it would look in black and white. (On the other hand, given your lack of appreciation for steep contrasts, maybe we should keep it at that.) One last thing: there really is something addictive about wide-angle lenses. I know exactly how you feel."
Mark Sirota: "Here's a great way to set the tilt of your screen for photo editing: Bookmark this link. Scroll down until the 'lagom' image fills the screen. Adjust angle until the top half of the screen looks cyan and the bottom looks magenta. Don't move your head."
Mike replies: Fascinating. Thanks.
Jim Metzger: "Exit signs, a wedding and event shooter's worst nightmare! Red eye reduction does not work for green signs. There is a pet 'greeneye' reduction now, I wonder if that would work?
"Don't you just love highlight recovery? I have found with a Nikon D810 I am better 'underexposing' interior architectural shots and bringing up the shadows. Very much like the photo in the previous post. Keeps the windows from blowing out past reasonable recovery."
