shutterbud: This is image drags your eye, but upon closer/longer examination there seems something off about it. I don't know what. Perhaps it is the unreality of the scene? That is its power but also its weakness, as if the photographer decided that what was in front of him wasn't interesting enought to shoot 'as is' and so had to manipulate both the frame and the viewer.

To ADMint, shutterbud & afterwish1

Thanks for your kind words and also I think it's fine if shutterbud feels there is weakness as well as strength in the picture. It takes all different views and opinions - life would be very boring if we didn't disagree from time to time!

The distortion is inevitable when using a fisheye. And surely in part photography is for me to show you what I see, not just to document what is there as others might see it.

Bob Tullis: Gee, that's creative on so many levels. Had no idea it was you, even though it reeked of your eye on things as I know it. Kudos.

Thanks Bob. See if you enjoy the rest of the set.
