I like the street photography shooting style and the way the lens distortion actually gives a greater sense of being there. Well done my friend.

A couple of things unique about the lens is its short minimum focusing distance. I fired (towards the subject) this one non-stop at around 2 feet from the bird while holding it in my left hand. I had no worry about not focusing at all. The woodpecker flew away after at the most 5 seconds of stay
