Very nice technical work, Brent. Great photo.

In response to magic surf bus: The only 'tweaking' was in choosing a projection to convert the effecctively spherical image into a flat one. Slight changes in the choice of center or how it is projected change the distortions and I did play with that to get the final image, but I didn't explicitly warp or modify anything.

All the more reason to be impressed then. If you don't already distribute these images commercially (ie postcards/prints) you should give it some serious thought - you're definitely onto something.

Wow, what a photo, you can probably only do this with a fish-eye lens, what software did you use? Will I be able to do this with my 18-55mm lens?

The sky looks like a flying pigeon or a sea gull. Your photos are marvelous like the view of teleido scopes or kaleidoscopes. I love both of them.

Bonjour, Quelques questions et remarques au sujet de cette superbe photo: -connaissez vous MC Escher ? Sinon, allez vite découvrir son oeuvre.. -il semble que cette photo (fish eye?)ait été retravaillée, je me trompe ? -A Paris, à trop regarder en l'air, on risque de marcher sur quelque chose de très désagréable !!! -J'ai regardé avec plaisir vos autres photos, vous allez finir par attraper un torticolis !

Amazing use of negative space ! And is that a fisheye lens that you used ?

Brent Townshend on September 10, 2007

Actually, multiple fisheyes.
