In Your Face

By kaybee  
Taken during a students parade in Krakow.

This is the first of a series using the fisheye 'in anger'
It was taken from probably about 18".

There is remarkably little distortion at the edges for a lens with 180 degree field of view.

It certainly doesn't appear to distort as much as my 10.5mm Nikon fisheye, though it's certainly a distortion I could live with. I shall view the series closely!
Meanwhile you have used it in an ideal situation, to distort a distortion as it were. Plus it's a lovely toned mono and a brave shot too!
Oh yes, and one of my favourite places.

Distortion depends on where the straight lines and recognisable shapes are in the frame - there's a good bit of barrel distortion around the edges...

Though possibly rather less than my 15mm Yashica gives, I grant you!

Good use.

Thanks all.
I appreciate there is distortion.... It is just not nearly as much as I expected from such a cheap lens - and the chrm
Omatic aberation is amazingly well controlled
