I've come to realize that when I use a wide angle lens, often I am not getting close enough to the subject to properly fill the frame. It seems natural to me when i encounter a gorgeous view to step back and try and take it all in. What I really need to do is step forward and making sure to get my main subject close enough to stand out. Otherwise the main feature I am trying to highlight ends up tiny and insignifigant. Am I crazy or what?
