    Sweet !
    Thanks for the compliments.

    The D2X/10.5/SB800 combo rocks, add a nice crowd and I just had to click :)  !!!

    Cool. Ya gotta love The Netherlands.

    Did you use iTTL for these exposures? Did you need to dial the SB800 down? You must have been very close to the subjects with that lens.

    That's wild Simon! It really shows off what you can do with a fisheye and a couple o' pasties!
  5. Geez,

    I don't have the 10.5 fisheye, and I seem to have misplaced my pasties.

    Interesting shots, Simon.

    Best wishes,

    What are pasties ?

    I indeed dialed 1 full stop down on the SB800 and used iTTL.

    Too bad this info does not make it through the EXIF.

    These shots are just brilliant in every possible way - I really enjoy your style!
  10. The 10.5 gives that "you are there" feeling like nothing else.

    People all talk about a fisheye distorting. Personally I think there is no such thing as fisheye distorting. It sees the world as we do. Our brains do the post-processing.

    What there "IS" is distortion created by most all other lenses flattening out 3-D world to a 2-D image. Those are distorted but more familiar.

    Our eyes are much more like "fisheyes" than most people realize.

    Thanks. Great application of the lens!

  11. Wow, really great images!

    Congratulations, Ralph, on an excellent series. Outstanding.

    And Verson, I agree with your comments about the fisheye, what you say makes a lot of sense to me, and Ralph's shots prove it.
