    I just picked up the new lens today. I LOVE it. It captures color way better than my tokina fisheye. Please give me some feedback on what you think about the pictures. Some are cropped, some are not. Constructive criticism is not only welcome but encouraged. I just want to get better. Sorry there are 5 pictures...I wanted to put around 9, so it was already really hard to narrow it down to these 5. This photography thing is WAY too much fun :D

    Instead of using the flash I would've liked to see a tripod and long exposure! Gotta get me a fish-eye!

    However, I took these on the way home from picking up the lens before the sun went down. Didn't bring my tripod with me. There will by many more to come soon with this bad boy.

    I LOVE THE LENSE! I want a fish eye so bad. Im also new to photography but hey practice makes perfect and just like me as the days go buy you get better and better with your gear.

    only thing i would say is pop up flash but hey, you were testing it out so its ok

    Going to sound harsh, but I think you can do way better with that location. As stated, they are test shots and honestly, thats what they look like.

    Popup flash kills many of them. The angles seem quickly chosen (1). Nothing really stands out.

    Head back there with a tripod, a flashlight (read on painting with light) and more time and produce some killer work like I know you can

    he did say he was using a speedlite...
    however..i do agree with twinky...the angles you chose aren't really complimented by the fisheye. but as you said...these are test shots.
    i do look forward to seeing more of your work with your new glass. :D
