Tom, pleased to see you here at Landscapes, too!Yourcapture bringing together thecomplementary and contrasting blueand yellow,regarding the subject, makesa well deserved tribute to Van Gogh Could it be that 1/3 ratiofor the skywork better aesthetically, bringing more emphasize on the subjectmeanwhile ??

Yes the rule of thirds would have been better from a technical perspective, but since I was using a FF screw mount Fisheye lens from Pentax I wanted to avoid the distortion that is very evident in this horizontal shot of the same field of flowers.

The lens takes in 180 degrees across the horizontal (with a FF sensor or film) so distortion is difficult to control, but then the unlimited DOF is hard to pass up.

I guess as I look at it now, I could have cropped the sky a bit and kept the horizon straight.

Oh, I see! I just meant a simple cropping off from the top : )

Anyway,I enjoyed seeing the comperative picture with this occasion! The fish eye is actually such a great tooloffering uniquevisions! And could be'straightened' again for a pano look easily with someproper software Hope you don't mind my pano version out of my excitement:-)

Some people don't like it but I love fisheye distortion, might be the next type of lens I buy.

I don't mind a bit, what software did you use to straighten it out?

I used the PTLens which gives unique resultsaccording to my experience forcorrecting lens distortion when compared with some other softwares I tried including the CS3 I invariably use for almost everything else!Btw, I should say, I wouldn't, of course, buy a fish eye to de-fish it later everytime andgo super wide zooms instead if I didn'd really like the fish eye distortion.My above pano version is intended for just in case...
