Stunning shots

And I have to agree with George, Darkmonk's BW Harbour shot is the standout.

I have had my Fishy for just a few weeks and i'm yet to put it to the test, but after looking at these its given me some good ideas to start with. thanks

I'll give my contribution... love this lens, but don't use it enough.

I have to bring it out sometimes soon. It very hard to force yourself to think so wide though...

That last picture is stunning, Nathan! I really, really like it!

Some amazing shots here. And I thought I was just about over my LBA

My faves so far is RR's castle shot. Amazing sky in that one, how did you get it that colour? Can you use a polariser on one of these lenses?

Nathan's Time Warner shot just about induced vertigo for me! Especially as you can only see the top bit at first, then you scroll down and whoooooaoaaaaaaaaaaaa!

I've never been a great fan of fish eyes, however I don't think I've ever seen them put to such good use. Some cracking shots here, well done.

Still wouldn't buy one though.

No filters I'm afraid, the blues were given a darker hue when converting with adobe camera raw, althought the same could be achieved after conversion. The 10-17mm is a pretty contrasty lens anyway I've found, but a little curves adjustment never goes amiss.

Here's another from the battlements; it was a spectacular view & a spectacular sky.

That sky is even better

Interesting that apart from the tower on the right you can barely see any fishiness in your latest one RR. Is that because it is at 17mm or is it because all the other lines are converging on the centre?
