Good question. I'd like to know too. I'm close to pulling the trigger on my first UWA lens.

Altitude, CP, light at your back.

Here's one from the Siggie 10-20, fall of 2009 at 4,000 feet in Montana:

Having the light to my back and using a CP really lets you get that blue sky. Also, elevation helps. And of course using Lightroom 2.5 helps too. Here's a little trick I learned that takes two seconds for deeper blue skies:

Maybe I went overboard with the wide angle ...

You'll get adjusted to it soon Rylan. Nice shots so far though. It seems like most of the people that haven't seen shots using a wide angle or have seen pics with distortion before, don't like the effect. I, on the other hand, love it. Here's 2 from a shoot on Friday night.

Very nice Rylan! Looks like you got a tack sharp copy. Mine is a little soft on the outside but I'm more than content with it.
