I just crept in the grass to get that "in-the-face" perspective. Best viewed in large size.
F/8, 1/500 sec.

Funny you can get so up close and personal with a fisheye, but you need some attractive bait (read "bread"). Also best viewed in large size.
F/8, 1/500sec.

great pictures Thomas,
a fisheye is a lens I've always wanted when I had film cameras.
still deciding whether to buy the Sigma 10-20 0r the 10.5 nikkor I guess if I break the piggy bank the choice is mine. Looks like the wider aperture of the nikkor seems best.
regards GCJ :D

Just reviving my practice with this great fish-eye. Here's what I shot today placing the camera to the ground to give you an incredible upward perspective just like from a mouse.

The image was taken at f/5.6, 1/60sec, ISO 200, -1EV, post-processed with a little stronger contrast and some cropping.
Btw. did you notice the dreaded curved lines of the typical fish-eye shot? Not much of them to be seen, eh?
