Fisheye at the Rugby


Link Posted 25/03/2010 - 12:15

I haven't posted for ages, but thought I should share a couple of fisheye pics from the LV= rugby cup final last weekend.

It was a really nice sunny day so rather than avoid the sun I thought tried to embrace it by waiting for a couple of clouds to some over.

C&C is very much encouraged.

Don't like fish eye shots as a rule, but these are fun and make me feel strangely part of the scene! Colour's best in first in but I like the way the stand roof closes over the others.


Best wishes,

I agree with Andrew. The colour is best in the first shot and the roof frames the other two. The room gap leaves me wondering what's there? Am I missing something? Think I prefer the sky in pic 2 also. Great work!


I gladly welcome C & C's. Being foggy minded they really help me learn.

Who would have thought the fisheye wasn't wide enough!

I agree with the two gentlemen above.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.
