That's nice. This lens, or the 10mm, is on my short list.

I really like images like this. It makes one fell like you are there or at least wished your were. Anytime a image can draw that type of emotion, you know you hit the mark. Nicely done Snappy. JIM

Great shot snappy. I need to get out and use my Sammy 8mm once I get the stitches out of my foot.

Hi

Nice!!
I guess the bend in those tree trunks is the doing of the fisheye but you wouldn't know if you don't tell people. I am not overly fond of fisheyes but it really works well here. And the colours, couldn't be any better. When pictures turn out like this it's a real joy, isn't it.

Greetings

I love this! Look at that light. Fantastic shot. That Samyang is a really fine lens, and the photographer really knows how to use it.

Thank you all for the comments. much appreciated. The Samyang is a reall gem of a lens, although manual focusing this really isnt a problem, it really is outstanding value for money. The most difficult thing when using it is trying to keep your arms and legs out of the shot.
