Yup, that's part of what strong fisheyes are good for: circular subjects, round spaces, etc. They're just right for shooting domes, pipes, tunnels, tubes, mouths (interior closeups) and other bodily orifices, eyeballs, anything like that. But I can't use them in my forest -- all the trees are falling on me! HELP!!! [crunch]
