I think I’m on a roll here so I’m gonna keep going.
One of the other neat little things that the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens excels at is wide-angle high dynamic range photography. I believe the keys to a really cool HDR image are good color depth and incredible detail and this lens performs very well on both fronts.
I took this series of three images (shown here as a finished HDR image) at both the minimum focusing distance (about 10 inches) and the widest focal length (10mm) for this zoom. If you click on the image below you can see the incredible detail in the texture of the wood and rocks captured by this lens.
