Default Playing with the 10-17mm

Just for fun, at 17mm the distortion is minimal (slightly cropped).

Very nice shot. Love the car, too. I've got to try something like that angle next time I'm at a car show. I've missed both of the ones I like to attend this year (sigh). If I ever win the lottery so I have enough "fun" money available, I'd like to get a fish-eye. Maybe in a few years, when I'm not buying other expensive photo-related things I'll manage one.

I like the lens, and the car is now in my driveway. A 1999 V6 coupe with only 103000Km and a 5 speed manual. Not exactly high tech (or high dollar ), but it is mine!!
