    Now I'm sure - the earth is round!

    Taken from the top of the Clerigos tower, Oporto:

    Now I'm sure - the earth is round!

    Good shot, Rui - dramatic. Did you use a fish-eye? Which one?

    I did. It was the Nikkor 10,5 2.8.

    ...and it is a very small world. Lovely colour again and a different view. I don't generally go much for fish-eye views, but I do like this one. maybe because it is anchored by the bit of parapet in the foreground.

    Thanks. Yes, you´re right. Sometimes fisheyes deliver unpleaseant results, specially when we use it not horizontally leveled. Here, I tilted the camera down intentionally to increase the effect you see.
    Thanks.
