Really nice shots. One question, just how wide a lens were you using?

Roger and Keith,

Thanks for taking time to comment.

That was Zenitar 16mm. Because it is a full fisheye lens, its FoV is almost that of DA14mm

I recalled I have defished the 4th pict so it has lesser degree of curvature

Figured it was the Zenitar when I saw the pronounced barrel distortion in the first image, it just adds to the sense of immediacy the street photographs have. Well don Daniel.

I'm starting to change my mind about fisheye lenses and the barreling that goes with them. I've always wanted to keep the lines straight, but as Ira says, there's a certain something about a skillfully composed fisheye picture that is so appealing, even without de-fishing it. Love your pictures, and the architecture picture is certainly an interesting building.

It is a tool and because of its huge FoV it has to have barreling effect. Nowaday we are lucky in that we can crop or defish it to minimise the negatives.
I must have taken over 8000 shots from the Zenitar and I am very used to its FoV . Because I have only fixed FL lens (huge advantage but inconvenient), I can visualise what the image would be like when I see one that is worth it.
Sometimes defishing an image may push out some subject. Anyway that subject is likely very distorted.
