With how inundated we are with images every day...

It's hard to be distinctive when you follow the conventional wisdom. Going on safari with telephoto lenses is a pretty conventional situation. If you do a google image search for any given animal you might see on safari, you'll probably find twenty technically competent images that don't really stand out.

With how inundated we are with images every day, it's unconventional choices like this that make for the most memorable photographs.

This is some great work.

Since this was a "proof of concept" experiment, I thought - heck, why not. And used the PEN with the Rokinon fish-eye to take this photo (among others):

Olympus E-PL3, Rokinon 7.5mm f3.5 at f5.6 and a $4 fish bowl. Heck yea.
