Fisheye is not all about distortion
Lens: DA 10-17 Camera: K20D

Especially at 17mm

But at 10mm it is certainly more obvious ....



Add an upward angle and a face the launched a thousand ...<insert wiseass crack here> well remarks !! and the distortion becomes more evident

Well, you do have 2 straight lines with the 10-17...

PS. Your shots are nice as usual but they look underxposed - perhaps trying to avoid the dreaded blown highlights?

Man, I dig these. Especially the first and third. The last one is a bit scary and should be rated PG-13.

Thanks John yes you have and a few others that would scare small children - Me ?? Vegas ??? ha !!! Indeed the annual pilgrimage is scheduled for Halloween this year (first time there during Haloween should be entertaining to say the least!) and ending with a Garth Brooks concert. To date I think there are 12 of us going this year with 4 - 6 more thinking about it and only 2 or 3 I really don't like
