I could have used jpeg in camera corrections but I rather liked the fisheye look :-). ( Nik HDR filter applied). Thanks for looking

It is this landscape itself that invokes a fisheye bending … Not the lens itself.

The lens uncorrected has plenty of barrel distortion (fisheye if you will).  Those two red lines should be parallel.

Nothing wrong with it, but it will exaggerate curves and such. Β I had to use the unusual wide points for resolution since the others had too much distortion
