I own a DSLR for less than a year, currently shooting with my Nikon D90 and 18-70mm DX lens. Since the beginning of it, I am deeply in love with shooting landscapes photography: seascapes, skyscapes, cityscapes.
I am thinking of upgrade to what I believe the next best lens for landscapes photography: 10-24mm DX lens, but I received mixed messages makes me doubting and delaying my decision.
From what I see in web posts/pages and discussion with friends, ultra-wide lens photography is not about "fitting more in" but "putting subject into the picture": "covering more into photo" was what I after and this sounds like maybe this 10-24mm isn't for me.
Here's an example photo of my photography style:

So the question was, is an Ultra-wide lens going to enhance my landscape photography experience as I will be able to "cover more into picture"? Or will I end up with an expensive specialised lens that I will be annoyed by amount of distortion on edges (and post-correction will end up 'zooming' the end product)?
Thanks in advance :)
Edit: The question title is way to subjective. I update the question title hopefully it points my question to a better direction :-/ The new question title is: "Does an Ultra-Wide Lens perform in Landscape Photography?", where perform as it: "whether it is designed for". Again, I'm fairly new to photography, don't be too harsh on me :S
