    Here's what I got while taking Corry on a surprise birthday trip to NYC. (One of my roommates tagged along as well!)

    I apologize for the fisheye overload... The first thing I did in NYC is go to B&H and buy it, so I wanted to use it. A lot.

    I guess this means I should finish up my lame pics and post soon, eh?

    I didn't really get anything good . . . but I LOVE what you got, Joe.

    I'm not a great fan of fisheye pics but I find the first shot really nice :)

    1,2 & 6 are certainly my faves.


    Like I said in another thread, Fisheye has a time and place, and not shots work well with it.

    Thanks

    Yeah, there are a few things like that. Fisheye, HDR and IR... problem is, when you get a new toy, all you want to do is use it! I'm over that now ;)

    Pretty good use of the fisheye lens on these shots. I see a Tokina-branded lens cap on the table in one of the shots. What lens was it that you used?

    I really like #7 (The Dave). Curious, what kind of post-processing was used in that one? Great shots.

    Derrel: Well spotted. I'm using the Tokina 10-17mm lens Fisheye. So far, I've only bought Nikon branded stuff, so that was a departure for me, but the quality is absolutely top notch!

    mikemicki: Thanks! There's not a whole lot of processing going on, really. I did my normal exposure and WB adjusting in Lightroom, and then curves and burn/dodge in PS. I did use a tablet for the burn/dodge work, which makes it a lot easier to get results like that.
