Wonderful! Knew it was yours from the thumbnail.

I too knew this was yours from the thumbnail.

What puzzles me is that there seems to be some barrel distortion. I've never noticed any barrel distortion with the 14-54 mm lens. Are you adding that Matthew? (Somehow I would have expected that you turn the "999" over...)

What ever ...

else you have combined here, it looks great to me.

So! Is that what it is then Edwin? I was wondering what it was but couldn't put a name on it. Will be interested to see any clarifications that may come! Whatever it is, it is a neat effect.

Like it, Matthew.

OK, I'll stick my neck out and predict that the distortion was added. If not, trade in that lens - obviously a lemon!

Funny I didn't pay much attention to it before posting it now I cant get my eye out of that top right corner. It wasn't intentional... though the bkgrd was distorted a little but it should have been more even... The barreling in the top right is pretty heavy! Not a good thing.
