A Fishy Ribex

Whilst on snapping duty duty at the show I had a little experiment with my new 10.5 fisheye lens. I need more practice but it's a pretty useful piece of kit. Any comments welcomed.

Cheers

Ian

Being perfectly honest I have never really liked the effect of a fisheye lens. Then again a true fisheye is better than an ultra wide which pretends to be flat but has convergence!!!
