Nice wide angle shot and great sky!

I like the perspective you used on that one, it is an unusual take on a subject that has been done to death.... very refreshing.

The fisheye unfortunately produces a queasy feeling, as my eye catches the buildings teetering on the right. Otherwise, good pic.

Is there a cemetery or churchyard for this church? i have got some ancestors that are buried at wigan all saints, but where were they buried?

I like this photograph. Was the lens set at 16mm?
with a crop factor of 1.6 it's still wide at 25 mm.I think the buildings on the right 'pulling in' is acceptable, giving the overall quality of the photograph.

A leaning lamp post.

Thanks for the comments.
The lens was at 8mm and I know it's not to everybodys taste, but I don't mind some distortion.
