Recieved my new Rokinon fisheye 8mm last week. Men's dance at my school asked me to get some shots of them, so I knew it would be a great place to test it out. Someone else was using the 7D, so I had to use my T2i. Unfortunatly, they may look a little soft because I focused to infinity. At that was as close as I could get without getting in the way (almost did).
Any suggestions? I think I shot at f/5.6

I prefer the first shot the facial expression is perfect....makes me think of a gravity free world.

I agree. The first one is better, faces are key (assuming it was a photoj type shoot). And the second the perspective is all off so its hard for the viewer to orientate themselves I feel.

Perhaps if you flipped the second making it a landscape shot with the mats being on the bottom of the frame

Yes, the irony is I originally posted it as a landscape shot, I'll flip it.
