My first impression was 'looking down the barrel'. Splendid fish-eye.

Now this one I do remember you taking, Bill. The fish eye plus the unusual angle of the stairs themselves has given an excellent skewed perspective.

Like the distortion of the fish eye. Feels like I am on an ocean liner.........Sandy

Can't decide whether to put my hands up and let you rob me at (double-barrelled) gunpoint, or to put my hands over ears and mouth to avoid the sound and taste of the exhaust coming from the twin outlets.

p.s. is the fisheye a new toy?

Definitely like looking down the barrel of a gun - and the effect is very similar to when I first put on my varifocals. It really works, though.

The fisheye has distorted the bannisters wonderfully well. I can still feel the cold of that day. Smile

Superb use of the fish eye Bill, at first glance they do not look at all like bannisters
