In this part of my fisheye series I used my lens more as a super wide angle than as a distortion mechanism. I rather liked the doorway in the big white wall and the contrast with the dark tree trunk seats.

Comments and mods welcome!

Best wishes, Simon

I like the burn-out white at the bg. Not sure if the door at the back is a good idea, can't decide...Wink

Great perspective in this and the starkness works well again. The door overlapping with the seat may spoil it slightly, can't make up my mind. The delicate lines on the floor give a good subtle lead in.

That's two in doubt about the door already. Wish you people would make a decision! Wink Just joking.

I like the door so much I've even considered giving it an image on it's own!

Thanks for your comments, everyone!!

I do like the door, just not sure whether it should be overlapping the seat. :0)

Whether it should or not, it isn't enough of a problem to mar the photo noticably, I'm just being picky (what else would you expect).

Picky is something a lot of comments on photos could do with, Ian.

I've been looking at it for a long time - again - and think it would have been worse if the actual doorway was overlapping. As it is, only the lighter doorcase (if that is the correct term for the edge of a doorway without a door) overlaps, and it seems less obvious. Think I'll leave it in for now...

Thanks for commenting!

Added a mod, but it's not quite come out with as much difference as I saw in PS.

Just increased the contrast slightly using an S curve, just felt the wood on the front seat is a little flat. Yes I know the tree trunk is round Wink)

You seem to be having a great deal of fun with this lens. I think the secret is finding a good location to use it and this museum seems excellent. Would like to see the standard shot of the British Museum (is it) with this style of lens.

no need for your own chair on this one.

Cheryl - couldn't find the plane, could you?

Ah! A mod! Haven't had one of those for a long time. Unfortunately I don't see a lot of difference. Disappointing. But thanks for trying anyway!

Unfortunately I don't think I'll be near the British Museum for some time (the family have become slightly afraid of trips to London, as you will understand), but I'm brooding on other options already...

Chair? No, not needed here. You know - these tree seats looked really comfortable. Wouldn't mind having one.

Thanks for commenting and modding!

Like this Conrad. I was also a bit unsure about the door, as it seems a bit too close to the object on the left, however I think it would've been quite difficult to get equal space between them all.

True, Mel, that would have been difficult, but I could always clone it out if I wanted to. I will consider that. Thanks for your comment!
