    I need one of these lenses!

    Excellent shots and composition! Cityscapes and fisheye lenses go hand in hand...and you did it well!

    Nice! Is that a star filter of diaphragm? There's supposed to be a way to tell but I forgot what it is.

    Anyway, nice shots! I like 1 and 3 best.

    thanks for the comments everyone!

    you said it man, lights and tall buildings everywhere. don't need to walk far to get an interesting shot.

    no filter, for some reason a fisheye gives cool starbursts like this. it's fixed at f/2.8, plus shutter between 10 and 20 secs i think. never tried those settings with my other lens, always do my long exposures at f/16 or more. so actually i don't know if it's the lens or the settings that give the cool stars.

    An aperture of f/16 will always give the cool starbursts regardless of lens. This isn't just a neat feature built in, but an inherent feature due to the physics of light/lens properties.

    Nice shots! I'm jealous.

    I have a night architectural shoot this weekend in Dallas with my local photography group. I wish I had a fisheye for it. I will have to make due with my ultra-wide (which I love). It will be its first time to do a night shoot, so I'm sure it will get a work out!

    Really nice shots.

    I did notice some slight distortion, however.
