I bought the Nikon 16mm AF-D lens mainly with weddings in mind, however I decided to use it for some architectural shots and I love the wacky images it produces. In fact I think it improves the looks at times of what a rectilinear lens would produce. Have a look and let me know what you think!

This particular piece is called the "wing" it's cast in bronze and has an inscription in English and French of a poem by Victor Hugo.

Thanks Jay - yeah I thought it would only get limited use but really like it for when I want to get something a little different.

Nice work Colin, I've been toying with the idea of a fish eye lens for a while, looking at these photos just makes me want one more....
