About Here is the second of the stalls I captured using my trusty fisheye. They look a bit like doughnuts but are actually much harder, more like cake. The fisheye is really good for getting in close and showing the whole thing.

I've always loved busy colorful market stands and vendor vendor images, but using the wide angle lense really added the extra 'punch' here.

Iinteresting question, Carsten. The fisheye is quite tricky to use and it took me a while to find out how to handle its unusual perspectives. I find it is much better to point deliberately well down (or up) than just angle slightly, although this renders the picture unsuitable for "defishing"... I am fairly tall and this lady was very short, and I also wanted to show the produce clearly, so a strong downward view seemed the natural choice. I do have quite a lot shot with this lens strictly horizontal. Choose "summary" mode and then select my "fisheye" folder and look for a series of stall shots and others (including banks of flowers in some temple grounds) taken horizontally. I'll be interested to read any comments you might care to make...

One gets really involved, or better, immerged with this lens... It looks as if you chose a quite eleveted camera point, why ? Kind of overview perspective, shows all the scenery, but a bit strange feeling. I have some super wides from a market myself, from waist-level perspective (do you have shots with this camera point ?)

Cheers

Carsten

Yes, Paul... everything including the shop assistants came from Okinawa specially for the fair. I don't know how much they sold but they all seemed to be having a good time.

Now here is a busy lady! Another great work with that lens, Roger. The golden yellow top the lady is wearing (along with the matching color pen tucked on her apron) pops this photo very appropriately...Gary

Optimal perspective, appeals to the angle-shot very to me. Congratulations
