Hi,

A little ditorsion is often great for the perspective

Medium distorsion is, well, a matter of taste (smile)

Lots of distorsion, with UWA, when used with taste, can be great as in this case

I don't normally like shots like this, but these have something that makes them attractive. I think it's the effective use of field curvature applied to the structure. The distortion is well-placed, and therefore interesting and engaging.

Nice.

Thanks for the compliments of these very distorting images. Why interesting? Well. The building is. I just portrayed that.

For comparison purpose, these are with median spherical distortion (16mm +1.5 crop factor equivalent to 24mm in FF) of the same building

I find the slight spherical distortion to be more pleasant when rendering landscapes or building. See what you guys think?

I have a thing for looking at wide angle distortion and these are especially enjoyable.

danielchtong,

These are very intriguing pictures, the first one is fantastic. One thing I noticed is that your reflection is not visible in the picture, that makes it truly remarkable. I am fascinated with structures on many levels and these are interesting perspectives.

Thanks for looking
I love that too. But this is an architectural photo forum. I am surprised that there are not too many wide angle shots in this forum. Here are two of the 16mm ( + crop factor = 24 mm ) shots of Toronto Eaton Centre. I have found this FoV is best for building / archi purpose

Here is a defished version of the 2 nd pict above of Eaton Centre. What are you guys' preference? This thread started with a full fish eye FoV, then with the digital crop factor (16mm+1.5) FoV and ends with this defished version.
I would love to hear your view/C C
One thing I have to stress is that since getting this lens(Zenitar 16mm manual focus in Pentax mount) last yr. I cannot stop using it and posting pict from it
