Nice structure. The fisheye made it something worth looking at, but it is a bit too symmetric for my taste.

Thanks for commenting, Mark. I don't have much experience with a fisheye lens, but so far, unless I get the subject dead center in the middle, the fisheye will distort the image till you can't even tell what it is. I might have to try some serious abstract images, but for now, I'm going to have to stick to the "middle of the road". Cheers

symmetry is absolutely needed here and i don't have an issue with it especially with the fisheye; i like the shining 'bronze' on the door frame and the polished entrance; my nitpick would be to avid or remove the car and perhaps the sign on the door ...cheers ;-)

Yes, I like that colour. HDR has helped with that.

Chris, the actual color was probably closer to the color on the bottom of the door. The PP added a bit of golden glow which I thought added to the interest. :-)

Nice found, Dough. Interesting effect from the fish eye's! The symmetrical shot does work for me, and your HDR treatment gives more dimension for the structures. I like it.

Thanks Yoki - I'm have fun with the new "perspective". :-)

I'm still learning the strengths of my fisheye.. had it for about 3 months. Your images are helping...

Thanks Bob - on my last two photo outings, I left all the other lenses in the car just so I would focus on using the fisheye. Maybe I'm getting better - but I'm having some fun in the process. :-)
