My attempt at street photography on a recent trip to Madeira.
Taken with my Pentax Q7 and fisheye lens, shooting from the hip.

The fisheye effect is strangely engaging, to me at least. It gives far more context to the main subjects than the standard "street" focal lengths. They're all perfectly exposed, well framed and sharp, as you'd probably expect with a fisheye. Well done. May just book a trip to Madeia.

Great shots of an interesting place! I recently brought a Samyang 8mm and love it - especially useful for holidays, the Q plus fisheye looks great for travel. The touble with my fisheye is though, I like it that much I never take it off!

Don't normally go for fisheye, but these are lovely! The fisheye effect seems to concentrate the attention on the main subject perfectly, along with interesting subjects and lovely colours.

Great fun, I did some of the same in Funchal in April having borrowed my sons 10 - 17 DA.What a wonderful place. I decided to buy a 12 - 24 F4 DA though as I only want so much of the distorted effect but do like the ultra wide angle at times.

Very nice indeed, I like the effect the fisheye gives, it adds context to the scenes by including the surroundings.
