Default Gander Fire Hall

K100D Super FA 50mm, K20D, DA 14mm and DA 10-17mm fisheye.

There was a fair degree of post processing to get the effects I wanted, but not enough to be very time consuming.

Very nice set. I really like them being in b/w, and I like the selective coloring in #2. Thanks for sharing.

I love the third one, it really tells a story to me, definitely my favorite. But all of them are excellent. Another thing I like is how you use dof, and the second one with the fisheye is a fun shot (the whole purpose of a fisheye in my opinion).

I like...very much. Not sure about the last one, might look good as B&W.
