A fisheye makes such a great street photo lens!

And, I love the expression of the fellow behind the magician in the third pic... priceless moment!

Dan that third shot is too funny! I love the expression you caught on the man's face. Thanks for sharing.

Your use of fish eye is very witty.

Out of the shots, first one really shows the perspective and the setting for the magician. Great image with quite an impact. I love it the best

Fisheye goodness!

The first picture paints the perfect picture of the scene; the second one is much closer to the action and quite dynamic.

The third one is hilarious.

All very nice but I love the third one. Great capture of expression and I really think the treatment is well done, love the red pop of the tie.

I think the concensus is that the guy in the third picture gave you a classic look. Haha. I had a good laugh with my buddy at work with that one.

Hamid: agree with you, the fisheye really shined in this situation. I only had my small bag (after all this was a family outing for me, not a picture-taking event). The fisheye proved to be a good choice to bring with.

everyone: yes the expression on the guy's face in the 3rd shot certainly makes it a keeper... If only the magician had been pulling one of those sets of flowers out of a hat or something, I would have left those colored, but alas, the tie was the only thing worth keeping colored.
