I was going to say gasoline. But then we would need Nitro lenses.

Even with the 20mm, I started to try to get wider with stitching. The result 
from PS using the 20mm was pretty bad. Perhaps I didn't use the correct 
settings.

This scene doesn't look bad. Just because you see it every day. Was this a film 
shot?

I will have to get out my  CV 12mm and do some comparisons. As always, 
interesting information. The 10mm does stretch the tree branches in the corners 
quite a bit.

One WA landscape trick I heard, with something in the distance being tiny, is 
to put it toward the top of the frame to enlarge it.

I'm wondering if a curved monitor might render WA shots better for our eyeballs?
