Fisheye Sunset

It was a crisp evening in the Delaware Valley, but it was so bright outside that I couldn’t help but take Bump for a walk. We headed down to the river, and as sunset was approaching I opted to take my Meike 6.5 mm circular fisheye on our walk. I’ve wanted to see how it handled sunsets.

I managed to capture some nice photos 1 before we turned and headed back toward home. I did some of my normal edits on my iPad, but then brought some of my favorites on to my Desktop so I could defish my photos. I was generally pleased with the results, and my favorite is below. On this edit I opted to abandon the original aspect ratio of the photo so I could retain as much of the wide-angle as possible. As such, I lose a good amount of the vertical data, but the scope of the photo is retained.

  1. After I remembered that I have to be really careful with my fingers when using this lens. Getting a digit in a shot is an easy trick to pull off, as the lens can see part of the way behind it.
