    Ya, ok so I'm bored this morning and realized that I have a bunch of pics I've worked on and not posted here, shame on me! Besides it was 87degrees and humid when I took these. Much nicer thoughts than the weather we have now :cry:

    I am almost always embaressed to answer this question but I am starting to learn how to get results from it so it has paid for itself time and time again ($50 on Ebay compared to $899 for a Canon 17mm :wink: ). Next step is to a 16mm Zenitar $139 and sharper still :wink:

    Believe it or not the full size really aren't bad either :shock:

    Actually it is the fish eye adapter shown above on a Canon 28-80mm used for both images.

    Thanks everyone!

    Well I cheated :oops: He wasn't there, it was a traveling Ford Motorsports event display trailer at an outdoor music festival. All of the cars on display were a year or two old but still good for pics :wink:

    I can only hope to one day get to a REAL NHRA or NASCAR event! Other than the Truck Series anyway :roll:

    I've been looking at these on ebay, and have been a little worried about them, but the pics seem to turn out really well, so I might have to go ahead and buy one.
