    some really cool photos, esp #3 for me.

    #2 has a bit too much of the halo effect on the building and the singer

    Thanks mate
    That file is difficult to PP, I think I have changed it 5 times already..
    It still needs a lot of tweaking to get the details right, but I'm sure there's a nice photo in there somewhere :)

    you got an exceptional set of images. IMO I really dig the PP you have done. #3 really nice.

    I've already commented in detail on nearly all of them with you earlier, but fucking A+ :thumbup:

    I just noticed that haloing on the Opera busker...minor problem in the scheme of things.

    #7 aptly named! I lol'd at that

    I love 2 and 3.

    spencer st station (southern cross?? meh) looks even weirder. the roof is extra wavy hehe

    for #4, have you tried the bleach bypass preset?


    /me cries some more.. fisheye.. where is my fisheye..
    btw, is it easy to de-fish these kind of shots or just too much distortion?

    Thanks :)

    Yeah you can de-fish, but it ruins some details and then you have to crop a fair bit. Not great for big prints.

    You keep saying you want a fisheye, I say probably better not, unless you're prepared to practice a lot. You really have to watch your corners and every single line in your frame with this thing. I have taken thousands of shots with it last couple of months and only now I feel I'm starting to compose a little bit. Unless you're naturally talented (which I'm not) it takes a lot of work. No wonder why most people who buy one never use it, its damn hard.

    Bleach bypass... rings a bell, I'll have a look tonight

    3 & 4 look great. I really like number 4, the way you've kind of captured the building from the side on to see the people but captured it looking up too. Nice effect.

    Thanks for you comments :)

    Bah, someone needs to do something different. Nothing wrong with a fisheye for street.
