Sample Fisheye Photos

From: Olympus 8mm Fisheye Lens

photo

My exposure settings in this shot weren't ideal, but the photo does show how the fisheye lens brings the viewer right into the scene (in this case, a small boat).

I could have made the people on the left and right sides of the picture less distorted by "defishing" the image with a Photoshop add-in like Fisheye-Hemi or PTLens, but I didn't think the distortion was a problem. (In my opinion, wide-angle distortion is part of today's visual vocabulary, although it might be anathema to photographers who grew up with view cameras and perspective-correcting lenses.)
