    At this resolution the aircraft is about 10 pixels total area. You can make out engines and other details in print though.

    The effects you are achieving with this lense are always and again so interesting! This photo is no exception at all! Great one! I love the framing!

    Thanks for the comments. I liked how the airplane is the main subject (at least to me) even though it's so soo tiny. Just looked interesting. Here's another from the same day / place, before the jetliner showed up:

    Wow great shots, now I really want to go out and buy a fish eye just to see what I can do with it. Damn my lack of money ;)

    Two words:

    zenitar & peleng

    Both are under $200. Both are manual focus fisheye lenses. The zenitar is a 16mm "diagonal fisheye" and the peleng is an 8mm "circular fisheye". You can get either one in canon EOS mount (or nikon mount or pentax or...) and they function just fine (you manually select aperture on the ring and your camera meters shutter speed).


    Look for ebay ID "kievcamera", he's a good guy to deal with.
