The Fisheye...

I love a great photo taken with a fisheye lens...

Landscape shots are a particular favorite of mine. The above photo is cropped so you can't see the edges.

This photo of Times Square is not. Cool to have options!

I've always shyed away from fisheye lenses because they are not in my photography budget. The one I covet is a mere $899 (gulp).

That was before I emailed this link to my husband at work, with a suggestion that it would make a great Christmas gift. And he obliged. :)

This is my photo for 365 today. Yep, a snow day here in Ohio. Now, it isn't my dream lens, but I am pretty pleased with the results! Not too bad for an adapter, huh?


I'm in love with Neil Creek's landscape photos using the real deal lens. For more awesome fisheye photos, check out the flickr gallery that is devoted to them here.

Off to play a bit more! Happy Weekend!!
