Default Fishy, Fishy....

Pretty cool. Couldn't wait 'till the weekend, so I changed and took a walk around the area surrounding my office after work with my E5 and the new 8mm f3.5 Zuiko fisheye.

Shot RAW and processed in Adobe Camera RAW, so any chromatic aberrations you might see in the highlights are down to me not seeing and fixing it well enough in the RAW converter. The angles this thing covers are, literally, mind-bending.

My office is in the center complex here..



Some of the high rises on the nearby streets..







American Airlines Center..



Victory Plaza, just outside the South extrance to American Airlines Center...



On this next image, I started out intending to shoot the highrise across the street, then noticed the reflection starting to appear in the top of the image, so I just kept looking further back until this filled the finder..



In case you don't see it on the columns at either extreme side, this is The Ritz...

Cute, indeed!

Steak and Seafood. From what I've been TOLD, it's excellent. Too rich for my blood to go there. I avoid any place where someone else has to park your car .

Okay, didn't even think about it being a restaurant. Duh, I thought it was an office building. Dallas has some really great restaurants, I always enjoyed the food in Dallas whenever I had a gig there.

I agree with Ken, if you move the page to fast you can experience vertigo.
