Leeds Dock

By TrevBatWCC    
Having acquired my Nikon Z6 a couple of months ago, other than testing it out and familiarizing myself with it, not taken anything serious as yet, but will on my Christmas holiday! I love using the fisheye lens, but the Samyang and Z6 don't see eye to eye (the exposure reading's all over the place, constantly changing as you're viewing on the screen! 😞Wink So, splashed out and bought the Nikon AF Fisheye Nikkor 16mm. It's much more compact and being on the full-frame camera gives about the same angle of view as the 8mm Samyang on the D500.
I've also downloaded the Nikon Capture NX-D software (and it's free!), which processes the NEF Raw files and more, and having played around, quite like it after using Adobe Camera Raw for many years. One feature I love is that when processing images taken with this model of Nikon fisheye, at a single click of a button it instantly converts the fish-eye image to an extreme wide-angle image, cropping to full-frame, therefore making it like two lenses in one.
The Leeds Dock area alongside the Royal Armouries is always a good place for photography, so took the Z6 & fish-eye for walkies and took a few images. This set shows the original fish-eye processed images and wide-angle conversions.

Many thanks to Colleen, Brian (brian17302), Lin (sweetpea62) and Phil (Philpot) for their User Awards on my previous upload, Palazzo della Comunità, Piazza Motta , most appreciated 🏆👍

Raw images processed in Nikon Capture NX-D, tweaked in Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your vote & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging 👍

Interesting to read about your lenses and the special qualities combined with the software.
I prefer V1 to the fisheye image of your first image but contradictory I prefer the fisheye version of the boat. The fisheye make an ordinary scene more visually pleasing.
What a great choice you'll have with your new toys.

Never been a fan of fisheye lens images but I do very much like V1 and V3. Useful feature being able to switch to ultra wide angle from fisheye. If we all liked the same things it would be a very boring site Grin

The software seems to work very well, Trev. I have a canon 8-15 which produces some good effects but for normal extreme wide angle I tend to cobble together a panorama.

That sounds an amazing 2 in one lens Trev, and the results are excellent. Most impressive images, but I bet the Fisheye Nikkor can’t lick its nose 🙂🙂 Very fine set here, look forward to more of your great results with this 16mm lens 👍

Lovely Trevor and very nice to have an opportunity to compare the images. I may be tempted to find out a little more about fish eye lenses! I'd better keep this comment away from Matron for fear that she has an attack of the vapours !!!!

Nice shots, interesting to compare the presentations but in the end I really like the fish-eye effect.
