    I take various pictures here, usually at night because I feel the night time and dark photography in general is an overall better look. You have full control of the night, it's what you make of it. Good or bad, you decide.

    Cameras: Olympus E-P1 and 2
    Lenses: Canon FD 28mm F2 and Samyang 7.5mm F3.5
    Tripod: Gorillapod SLR with ball head

    Looking at this lens myself, and your third image has convinced me that I should include one in my bag. Very nicely done.

    Thank you all very much! I always seen fisheye lenses being used for skateboarding, and never for serious photography... Why? Because it distorts it's view? Isn't photography an art, isn't distortion a form of art (well, abstract at least.) I want to use the fisheye to capture large lanscapes or extreme views of something that simply has to be fully viewed in a large portion of an angle... And that's what I use it for. I hope you all feel the same, and decide to give a fisheye a shot with serious photography as well.
