Going for the wide angle: 1st experiment

I am very attached to my lens because it lets me do whatever I want: normal shots, wide angle shots and even micro; and getting used to the multi-tasking mode is pretty easy. But in my birthday I received an incredible and wonderful surprised, a wide angle lens. Have receiving it now was perfect because we’ll be traveling to Australia in two months time and shooting those beautiful landscapes and the nature is all I want to do when I get there. Now I have about the same amount of time to practice and get used to the new wide vision.

Just a couple of days after my birthday I went out and experimented a little bit with it right here in The Hague. Since the light was not good (it was getting dark) most of the photos I took came out horrible, so I could only save three of them. Here are the result:

This photo was in the city center very close to the parliament, De Buitenhof

What do you think? I know I can do best and have better results, I just need to practice a little bit more. Hopefully by the time we arrive in Australia I will be able to take beautiful photos.
