    Cool use of a fisheye, AK. I like what it did to the stairs.

    Normally I am not a fan of fish eye shots, but this one is neat

    I can't tell if you are being serious or making a joke :-/

    No, I was serious. I like the image, and the distortion caused by the lens did something to the stairs that made me look twice. Taken with a rectilinear lens, the effect wouldn't have been as severe.

    Hmm. It is a perfectly round room and the stairs twist and follow that wall. The only distortion that I see is vertically at the edges of the doorway/entrance wall area. Am I missing something? I usually do.

    Don't the top and bottom of the stairs look distorted by the fisheye effect to you? That's what I'm talking about.

    Maybe. Hell I don't know. Everything is distorted, twisted stairs in a round room captured by a fisheye, everything is wonky. Now I wish I grabbed a shot or two with at least the kit lens. Oh well
