Very little done to this shot (levels for a touch of contrast)......the fallen tree is really twisted like that !, & the 'horizon' is
curved from using the Samyang 8mm semi-fisheye lens !!.....I had a hell of a job to keep my feet out of the shot, not easy
with size 11's !!!!!.Grin

So basically just a 'wacky' take on bit of woodwork at Attingham Park, near Shrewsbury....not to everyones taste, but just
a fun shot really..........WinkGrin

Many thanks for your interest & comments on 'Remember Autumn'......glad you liked it !!, different innit !!

Have a great weekend !....I'll be out there catching a few 'rays' & hopefully a few pics. tomorrow if this glorious sunshine
holds out.......but it will involve the old 'thermal-undies' methinks !!!.GrinGrin

I love the curves you get from a fisheye Keith.
And it saves anyone moaning about your horizon not being straight too !!
A good bit of curvy grotty bark here.

Fisheyes and wide angles cause their own problems Keith, I might find my stomach getting in the shot. I think I'll cancel my order for this lens. It certainly delivers a crisp image, looks a good lens to have in a tight situation.
