The more I start to use HDR I realize how much effect wide lenses add. I shoot a Canon t2i at 18. What do you suggest without breaking the bank and also have to deal with fish-eye?

Hi, You are such a inspiration. I love HDR and your photos are awesome. I have started using HDR in some of my landscapes and doing a panoramic and tone mapping through DPHDR. Seams to work. Although I am still finding my way, I learn along the way. Your cook book has helped a lot. Thanks.
