Nice set, cmoy!

Like Hards, I usually don't like fisheye (for me, the distortion effect is annoying - I know it's just a personal thing). However I particularly like the effect and how you composed the 1st one especially. Lovely colours and crisp images.

Our tour guide took us to this consturction site that was closed We had to trek a bit to the edge. The view was amazing! We were some where between Eze and Monaco. Here's the opposite view...

CMOY, a lot of your pics take my breath away ! You're super talented...

I've visited most of the Côte d'Azur...if I only knew about that high-up spot !


Did you visit Marseille and St. Tropez ?

If it's not too much of a hassle, please post some more pics...I'm really enjoying this !

Thank you so much for the kind words Marawder! No, we haven't visited Marseille or St. Tropez. I'll add them to our list of places to see

Here's some more photos of our trip to Nice. Be aware, over usages of my fisheye lens

Yeah, I'm not really a big fan of the fisheye effect... You really did over-use it...

But the pics are still very pretty ! A true delight to the eyes...

Thanks again Marawder! Since getting my hands on a 16-35mm I haven't used the fish eye as much
