Skateboarding with A77 and Rokinon 8mm Fisheye - C&C welcome

Picked up a used Rokinon 8mm Fisheye last week, so to test it out I scheduled a shoot with a sponsored friend of mine in downtown Nashville.

I'm happy with the lens. All these were shot around f8, and there is a sweet spot focus wise on the lens. The A77's focus magnification makes it very easy to pre-focus for an area where I want to make sure it's sharpest, and the 12fps available provide a plethora of shot selections.

We walked around downtown Nashville for a couple hours and ended up with about 430 frames shot... And got run off from 3-4 different locations before we could shoot and scoot ... (Which is entertaining considering I'm a fully gray haired 48 year old)

Anyhow, enjoy, and C&C is appreciated.

And a bonus wannabe country singer outside the back-door to Tootsie's off Broadway.
(after the photo he hit me up for $5 for a beer inside)
