Seattle Streetcar - April 2008 Advanced Photo Challenge

The Seattle Streetcar pulls into its last stop at Westlake Center where the driver will switch ends and head back North to Lake Union. An extra sunny day provided amazing light reflections off of the building to my right allowing the back side of the unit to be lit up.
Well, I guess we don't need to check the exif info to determine whether or not this one qualifies as a wide angle!

Wow! What lens did you use for that?

> 10.0mm (35mm equivalent: 55mm)

Is that correct? I mean I believe the 10mm part, but would it really be equivelant to a 55mm, that just doesn't sound right.

Heck, if it is, maybe I should buy a Canon 20D, that would mean my 300 mm lens would be equivelant to a 1650 mm? Seems like something's not right.
Congrats on your win! Love the fish eye effect and composition of this shot. The image is very creative. Great use of the reflective light on the side of the streetcar. Is the (barely noticeable) darkening in the sky immediately over the streetcar a side effect of fisheye, or maybe from a denoise brush? Also, call me silly but I love that bright yellow sign reflecting in the window. Cool stuff. I would like to see more of your fish eye shots!!! *hint hint*
