    Is this a project or a paid shoot? No composition, and i don't think the fish eye was the right lens for this kind shot.

    I gotta disagree. I think the fisheye turned this into a creative shot. I think it helps to balance the subject-centered composition. I like it a lot!

    I agree, the fisheye paired with centered composition worked for this one. Nice work.

    I think this is interesting and it caught my attention..fisheye definitely defined the photo....
    Are there any thoughts behind this one?

    I agree with the majority. I think the fisheye effect enhances these and don't think they would have looked half as interesting using a standard lens.

    I also agree with the majority. Fisheye is what makes the photo (and great lighting). The only thing that I can notice that would have been better differently is the backdrop. I think it would have been better if somehow the wall/backdrop went to the top of the frame in the picture. The mechanic's of the ceiling are a little distracting for me. Awesome photo though, and just further proof that I need to get my SB-600 off the camera (and add a SB-800 :))

    Paid. It was actually a catalogue shoot. She had about 50 masks that needed to be shot for her portfolio. That was just one of the fun shots that I did. Agreed on the background...but we had to work in the space the exhibit was in.

    I'm going to have to a gree with the majority on this on, too...I think that the fisheye does fit it well.

    Thank you for the feedback!

    I think it looks neat. I'm not loving the space at the top. Would cropping some of that out look weird?
