Very nice Chuong, the colours are perfect. Love the violet tones. Is that your house?
Just need to defish a lil' and correct the tilt

Chuong, I like it! Don't usually care for fisheye shots, but this one works for me.

No Chin, I live in it but it's my brother-in-law's.
I normally hate playing with Photoshop but I will try to improve Thanks.

You got me Reagan...

Shots like this Chuong require a different approach. Since it is a fisheye shot let it be one. What I look for is whether the center of the image which should be vertical or horizontal is. The right edge of the pathway in the foreground appears to be in the center of the frame. I'd look at a straight line in the house above that path edge, perhaps a window mullion or a vertical trim piece such as we see on the second level near the middle of the image. Doing that it appears the image should be rotated slightly clockwise. I experimented and came up with this...



I think it might take a bit more rotation, but this is the sort of exercise I would do with an image like this. It is easy accomplished in Photoshop which will give your vertical and horizontal lines to serve as a guide.

With or without tubes Jeff, this lens always amazes me. It is definitely one of my desert island lenses. Love both of these shots but I'm always partial to tube work with this lens... Glad you're sharing your work with us. You have a fine eye for composition and take the time to get some interesting shots.

Agreed! I did a bit of play with treatments like this some time ago. It is great fun. I love what you've done Kevin.

I just received a PM from Tony alerting me to the fact Nikki was shipped today and is on the way to me. Amazing to realize this adventure is drawing to a close. I was a little less than a year ago that Leighton and I had a conversation about trying something like this. And now I'll be the last person to entertain our fair lady before sending her home to Ben who so graciously gave us this opportunity to play. Thanks again Ben.

It is remarkable to realize what this adventure has wrought. Quite a few of the folks who

Curtis you're starting to worry me with all of these cracks about how nikki may not make it back to Australia. (There's a big gap on the lens shelf where she belongs)

You must be talking about MY lens shelf Ben...

I would suggest, however, that when a box arrives at some future date, you should look very carefully to make certain it is an H.C. lens and not an H...

Thanks everyone for your comments. Thanks Curtis for the tip. I will definitely use that grid more for shots like this.

The 16mm is so much fun and getting the rotation can be tricky. So scenes lend them selves more than others. I really like your shot and the rotation does provide some improvement.

Here's a few from today using the D600 and 300mm 4.5 EDIF Some of the shots required a very high ISO. The D600 seemed up for the task.
6400

Jose, thanks again for the historical context around those super Pompeii photos. Doesn't look like the Roman artillery broke down those particular walls, the holes don't look that big. But I can imagine the Pompeiians living in fear from the sounds of the bombardment.

Kevin, loved that old car and the post processing you did!

Jeff, very nice capture of that road and the lane markers, crooked and all.
