Fish-eye flowers

Fish-eye flowers
Photo Information
Some miniature daffodils and other spring bulbs. 8mm lens used for depth of field rather than fish-eye effect. Horizon fairly level to keep visible distortion at a minimum.

K3 + Samyang 8mm

(the EXIF incorrectly says the focal length was 35mm)

Would never have guessed it was a fish-eye! Nice one!

If my eyesight was better I'd like to try the Samyang lenses. Nice image

I'm not great at manual focus myself but with the 8mm lens the DoF is so great I can cope with it. I imagine the 14mm would be ok as well. I have the Samyang 85mm/1.4 but my hit rate with that wide open is not so good - the Dof is paper thin so focus has to be spot on.

Thanks smudge. I'll bear that in mind when I'm in a buying mode again.
