Terrific effect of the fisheye on these chairs Conrad. I think the four plain chairs in a row must be rather boring. Perhaps you should send the museum your shot showing how they could improve their layout!!

Thanks, everyone!

Yes, the spelling of "contemporary" is fine!
Wink

3 instead of 4, Cole? Well, make me a mod and convince me! Wink

Angela, you hit the nail on the head: straight and normal I would have found it all boring indeed, but the fisheye made it fun! I had a great time distorting things. Many visitors were clearly wondering why I was giggling and laughing while focusing on different subjects in the museum!

Totally different style for you Conrad and I like it a lot. The starkness of the image works well with the fisheye.

Julie - not exactly on me, and not exactly in the same building either, but yes, there were chairs! Wink

Ian - yes, unusual indeed, and that's probably why it was so much fun!

Good series Conrad. I love the symmetry of this. The fisheye is a great way to take different looking pics.

Thanks, Mel. I had so much fun - the architects and museum conservators had come up with so many stark designs with straight lines, and here I was, distorting them all! Wink

I've looked at this several times now - still can't quite compose my comment. It's appealling and possibly hypnotic. What I can't decide is whether these feelings are stimulaed or enhanced by the fish-eye effect. You have certainly got me looking and thinking.

Laing - I quite like your comment, even though you're not able to go into specific detail. If the image intrigues you enough to look and think, I'm happy to have achieved that at least! Thanks for your comment!

Hey Conrad (yes, it's me again). I want to see you bend those knees, or lie flat on the ground or climb a ladder with that 16mm!

Having said that; this is such a cool shot. I'd like to see the effect of the lens more by bolder floor-lines maybe? But hey, this works and is very professional.
Best wishes, Simon
