The Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G is very wide on FX – so wide, that it can fit lots of foreground in the frame. On one side, it is very nice, because you can highlight the front objects, but at the same time it can be a little negative, since it makes background objects look tiny. Here is where a large cannon used to stand before:
And by walking a little closer to the shore, I got this beautiful view:
Castle-like part of the fort:
Again, lots of textures:
Lots of iguanas around the fort, especially in large open areas. I captured this one using a panning technique while it was running:
Some guy taking a picture of the fort:
This is the second fort on the other side of Old San Juan. It is actually pretty close to the first one, but we decided to take one of the trams instead, because it was sunny and very hot.
Cannon placeholders looking at the ocean:
More doors and textures:
Overlook from the side:

A really old iron Cannon:
Old windows – looks like an HDR image, but it is not :)
A memorial at the fort:

I took this picture at a local art festival that was taking place at the time. There were plenty of interesting photo opportunities, but I ran out of time and had to run to the airport.
All of the above images were taken with a Nikon D700 DSLR with 14-24mm f/2.8G and 70-200mm f/2.8G lenses.
