Wide Angle Lens

A few years ago I bought this:

for my Canon G3.

I don't really think I know when to use it.

I used it in a fairly long distance shot of fishermen loading their catch, whereas my husband used just say 35mm equivalent and got a lot better pic. Also, I thought it should be used, say for landscapes to get more of the picture in, but now I think I see people using WA lenses on buildings, fairly close up to get more dynamic angles or low angles on cars to make them look more arty.

What should WA lenses really be used for?
