Holy Fish

I own a fisheye lens for about 5 years now and I absolutely love it.  It is small and neat and easy to carry with you.

Of course, this is not what makes a fisheye lens special…It’s this: normal rectalinear lenses disfigure curved lines. Fisheye lenses disfigure straight lines, but treat curved ones gently. Also, a fisheye has a viewing angle of at least 180 degrees, which is very useful in large and spacious buildings.

So, large buildings with lots of arches. That sounds a lot like a church, doesn’t it?  Indeed it does. It’s in these places where a fisheye lens feels like a fish in holy water.

Anyway…see for yourself.
