Telephoto or Wide Angle

What affect does lens selection have
on the "look" of a photograph?

These photos were taken with a Canon 20D (1.6 factor) which is probably why
the wide angle photo may not be as "wide" as you're accustomed to viewing.

16mm

Yeah ok, it's a bridge.

This is much more interesting.

Notes:
  Both images were taken from approximately the same distance from the bridge.
  There was a polarizing filter on the wide angle lens at the time, which is why the sky is a deeper blue.
  It's surprising how much a wide angle lens "expands" an image, my car has almost disappeared in the wide angle shot.
