Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 Distagon T* ZE Lens Sample Pictures
Clouds over the Florida Keys Flats Clouds over the Florida Keys Flats
Really, it is hard to take bad pictures in the waters west of Key West. Just add a Circular Polarizer filter to a good lens mounted to a good camera.

Wahweap Marina, Lake Powell Wahweap Marina, Lake Powell
Wahweap Marina and Lake Powell as seen from the Lake Powell Resort. The deep colors are the results of a circular polarizer filter.
 
One of the photography concepts I like to utilize is reducing the number of lines intersecting the edges of the frame. Especially the bottom of the frame.

Desert View, Grand Canyon National Park Desert View, Grand Canyon National Park
Desert View is at the east end of the the Grand Canyon National Park's south rim road. It is a very unique structure that, unfortunately was under heavy rehabilitation construction during my visit. To avoid the yellow and orange heavy equipment, I strategically-positioned trees and then shot upward. The lens flare frames the stone building nicely.

The round lines of a swimming pool frame the bright, sky-reflecting water and lead to a little girl standing on a diving board.

Hamilton Park, NJ Hamilton Park, NJ
I found the curving handrails leading to the piece of art to be interesting. Even with a 3300k white balance setting, this 13 second exposure image still has a unique color.
 
21mm  f/11.0  13.0s  ISO 200
Grand Canyon Landscape Grand Canyon Landscape
A strong haze required contrast to be added to this shot. You might ask, why not shoot this at ISO 100? Wind is the answer. Very strong wind required a slightly faster shutter speed than I would usually be able to use for a shot such as this.
 
21mm  f/8.0  1/60s  ISO 160
Pool and House at Night Pool and House at Night
Want to create a starburst effect from the lights in your picture? A narrow aperture will make this happen. A lens with an even number of aperture blades will create the same number of rays as the number of aperture blades. A lens with an odd number of aperture blades will create twice the number of rays as the number of aperture blades. In this picture, 18 rays indicate 9 aperture blades.
 
21mm  f/16.0  15s  ISO 200
Desert View Lookout Desert View Lookout
The architecture of Desert View in Grand Canyon National Park is very unique. This image was taken while peering up the center of the building.
