It certainly does look like you are enjoying yourself ! These WA lenses can be great fun.

I particularly liked (would help if you numbered them ) #4, #5 and the last shot of the second post (pavement) !

Looks like a fine lens in some very capable hands! Shows great color and sharpness in all of these, and shows some great composition skills as well. Especially like the perspective on next-to-last photo of the green fence (?) and building...

You are making good use of the wide angle. I particuarly like #5 and #10 (Last shot in each of the first two postings)

Wonderful series! You are having way too much fun with that new lens - it shouldn't be allowed. But then, I remember when you first got your macro lens you kept posting a whole bunch of wonderful pictures with it, too. Isn't it a fun lens to play with?

Great compositions and perspectives. #4 is my favortie.
Gotta agree with you that the 12-24mm is a great lens for taking pictures when travelling...use mine a lot when I'm touring.

I agree with all the above comments -- these are very nice photos. I have long admired the 12-24. I plan to buy a wide angle lens at some point, and the Pentax DA 12-24 is high on my list.
