This fish-eye (Nikkor 10.5mm DX) view of the Thames Barrier and Canary Wharf looks as if you are seeing the curvature of the earth!

I understand your explanation of this lens, Steve - but it works well here, giving us a better understanding of the barrier's purpose. Vicki

Interesting shot with that perspective.

Thanks Alandra. I'll post a "corrected" version of this image in a day or so for you to see how the software I mentioned deals with the native distortion of the fish-eye lens.

only just spotted this one, Steve. Neat effect. Interesting about converting it with the software to become an ultra wide lines.

Thanks Don - yes it's a great lens, though one to be used in moderation. I often use software to convert the output to rectilinear format, so that it becomes simply an ultra-wide angle lens.
