I absolutely love the versatility of this lens. At the widest end of 16 mm, this lens allows me to get entire scenes captured when I am traveling which makes it perfect for street photography, beach photography, and landscape photography. It is also great for environmental portraits at the 35 mm range without too much distortion.
For this particular image, I was laying down in the grass to get as much of the grass and the colors of the sky against the barn. I also wanted to highlight the feeling of the expanse of the farm by using the lens at 16 mm.
