Just joined the club after a terrible week at the hands of LBA. I got my hands on 3 new-to-me lenses including the Sigma 15mm Fisheye. I am still in the figuring out stage for what subjects work with fisheye and what doesn't. 15mm is probably a good (not so fishy) introduction.

Couple of rough shots with it to start.

How did you get the star effect?

Stop down beyond about f8.0 and points of over-exposed light will do it almost every time. The number of points to the star either equal the number of aperture blades (as in this case), or double that. Some lenses do it better than others; the DA 15mm limited is legendary for its perfect 14 point starbursts.

Getting the effect to look as beautiful as mikeSF and others manage takes rather more skill, patience, and often a long exposure on a tripod.

Super! A great example of how the fish eye breaks up the routine!

Mirror by kh1234567890, on Flickr
Seems like the use of two fisheye elements cancel each other as the building in the mirror looks straight!
