Clearly the window dressers get carried away with their work Nick it looks like they are having a party and have forgotten there are folks outside!

There is a lot of barrel distortion on that 35mm lens of yours. Ever thought of having it looked at?


Cheers - Jethro

Jethrohoyt, ~ It is amazing what you can get in the Frame after a couple of pints of Watney's Draft Red Barrel ~ the whole world looks distorted and you can have a barrel of laughs as you twist the night away on a 24-70mm lens :~)

They don't still make WRB do they? Even worse, people don't drink it???

Lack of sleep can give a distorted view of thing, although I don't think it was in this case :) But the distortion I must say seem excessive, unless you have introduced it yourself in post editing if not, its a bad lens! :)

NICK KNACK, Well this puts paid to the myth "the camera never lies" ~ and you know that I would not possibly be using a bad lens :)) I thought that the clue in the title was sufficient ~~~
