    Tourist in Worcester

    I went to Worcester, (UK) yesterday and took this "tourist" picture. C&C welcome as usual especially regarding the b&w conversion.

    I think the conversion is good. There is good contrast in the image and the subject matter lends itself to the making of B & W images.

    What did you shoot it with? All I can see from the EXIF data is that it was at 1/400. The focal length and aperture are both showing as 0 on my EXIF viewer.

    I would be tempted to do a bit of a crop at the left hand side so that you achieve total symmetry and have the entrance arch and teh door right in the centre.

    Thanks Donald, please that you like it. This was with my new fisheye an 8 mm Samyang **** at f5.6, ISO 100. Took your advice about the crop, looks better i think.

    Fisheyes are quite a specialized tool and I usually don't like the results. This image, however, is quite nice.

    Thanks for this, please you like it. I have only had the lens a few days and it certainly an acquired taste, but id does bring a new dimension to my photography.

    I agree, but from the two examples I have seen so far, Andrew seems to absolutely understand what it takes to give us a great result.

    I look forward to more, well done Andrew,

    These work well,Andrew but although I have a fisheye too I don't think I'm totally quite there with it yet .Maybe if I try some buildings like this I'll warm to it, I have a couople of tree fisheye photos which I'll post but I haven't tried it on buildings yet.

    Hello Andrew....

    Love'em Fish-eyes are a very unique way to express yourself!!! Congratulation, not many photographers use them. I guess it's sometime difficult for others to break away and get out of the box. For me I love the wide view of the tapestry of life...

    Thanks for this Paul, I am pleased you like it. There is so much more to the world around us that sometimes our 'normal' perception gets in the way of things—as we know animals 'see' the world differently to us so to look at things in a different way can be interesting to say the least!

    I'll get them up shortly,Andrew.I don't have a website so for a link I need to get them into my Mac gallery which Mac are going to close down so I'll have to see about a basic website.

    I clicked on Paul's link thinking they were some of his wide view photos - they weren't- lol.
