Residenz, Munich, been there, photographed at least the Roman emperors hall. The continental aristocracy really knew how to do a ceiling.

Yes, that's the place, some halls were really pretty impressive in size.

This is the Olympic stadium built in '72, with (not so) Fishy eyes as always

M and I were in Munich some weeks before the start of the '72 Olympics, traveling for research purposes, visiting museums. Did not see that stadium, but did get sight of and a picture* of the Olympic spire that was erected from one of the towers of the Frauenkirche. Think I scanned that chrome and posted some long time back. We moved on the Graz and Vienna well before the Olympics started.

Bower 8mm. As much distortion removed as LR would allow.

My first attempts at shooting the night sky, with the Rokinon 8mm fisheye on the K-3ii.
Yikes! Someone shrunk Orion!

Jaguar. Sorry if I already posted another image similar to this one.
My dad had one of these (Jag XK 120). Seeing your photo brought a grin to my face. Thanks for sharing.

You mean keeping the tree entirely in the picture or there any hard limit?

When the LR "distortion" slider is moved off center, it causes either barrel or pincushion distortion. To eliminate FE distortion, of course you move it to cause pincushion. When you crop to eliminate the lost areas, it is entirely the corners. The center left-right and center top-bottom of the image are preserved.Maybe I can post three images to demonstrate.

Below:
1) the first image has no distortion removed, but I've opened the shadows some and tweaked the colors to my taste;
2) the second image is the maximum pincushion distortion that the LR slider can apply
3) the third image is a crop of the second.

Differences are subtle. A telephone pole at left still leans, but it isn't as curved as in the original. More iteresting a valuable, the beautiful tree at left is now wider than in the original. The corners that have been lost do not contain visual information that contributes significantly to the image.

I ask because by default when I look at my 10-17 pictures, even at 10mm in DxO, they look perfectly rectilinear as DxO apply a lens profile to it automatically and it tend to change a bit the aspect ratio. Honestly, not much is lost except the corners.

I can use a slider to check how much correction I want from perfectly fish to perfectly linear. If a lens has no profile, I can correct manually barrel or pincushion, but it doesn't work that well if I try with the 10-17. I have to choose the "fisheye mode" and then it become easy, even manually.

Of course as I am not necessarily interrested, I tend to disable the correction, and I try to have the right level of fish directly from setting the right focal length with the 10-17.

I does something like that to your last image... But it may not look better if your go 100% defished...

And if I combine with "volume" sliders I can get the second one.

But then I don't think the picture would have this place in this thead and your version look more pleasing than fully correcting the picture.

I generally don't use Lightroom for defishing (if/when it makes sense to do so). The "distortion" is not classic barrel and the sliders often provide a less than satisfying result. I prefer PTLens for the task since it has algorithms specific to setting a fisheye image straight.

The 10-17 at 10mm, just mildly cropped, no distortion correction applied, processed with Nik Silver Efex for drama. This is such a fun little lens!
