wow, great photo - that sure was close... you probably felt the air from the tire zoom past. What fisheye?

That is such a neat shot !

Completely agree re no regrets

One thing I like about the fisheye is that it is almost impossible to get
a non-sharp shot ( well, OK, if you really tried, you could ), sharpness
at f/2.8 is wonderful.

Another thing I like is that with such sharp images, you can zoom in
deeply and still have very accurate detail.

That bike rider shot is amazing - great stuff

Thanks everyone!
And yes Bobby, I certainly felt the wind Shot with the 10.5mm Nikkor.

He wasn't the closest call of the day but I really enjoy how this one turned out.

And you're right, Keith, if you set the focus fairly close and stop down to around f/5.6 or 8 you're almost for sure going to get it in focus.

I'll share a few more when I get through them all.

Lovely shot. A fisheye is a recent aquisition for me and I love it so far but need to make a point of taking it with me more often. It has more uses than I have discovered so far.
You must have been pretty close to the action to get that shot?!

Outstanding action shot. I wouldn't be brave enough to get that close.

I certainly was close, but not as close as I was to this one!

This one actually made me reel back a bit. The rider gave it a bit too much throttle and wheelied out of the corner but because he was turing it sent his front tire in my direction
