Awesome shots, Groucho. Now I'm wishing I would've used the fish, rather than the 70-200 on my one trip on Jungle Cruise. Might actually have to ride it again in December just for photography's sake (might be heresy to some, but JC has fallen off my radar for "must ride" attractions--we've had some terrible skippers as of late).

Thanks! The skippers are sometimes a bit hit or miss. Ours was pretty good. I think our trip in January had the best one we've had yet. We like riding it at night, too - of course, shooting it at night would be pretty challenging, we just like the feel of it at night.

Here's another JC shot in a style that you don't see very often...



...and the R/C boats at the exit.



Here's a couple shots that I was never quite satisfied with. Both involve moving water...



This one I took way too long on (too many 30 sec exposures, including this one) and still never got it quite to my liking. I think the original lighting isn't really set up ideally for such a photo (the nerve of them! )... in case you don't recognize this, this is a waterfall at the back on the stroller parking in Fantasyland, near the old Skyway building.



I'll end with a different angle for the Hyperspace Hoopla crowd shots I posted in my TR.

Groucho, I've never been sold on the Fisheye look. But the work you've been doing with it is really amazing. For the first time ever I have myself wishing I could give it a try!

I'm betting half of the battle is knowing when the fisheye will enhance a view and when it won't. Clearly you've got that down!

Thanks very much! I'm glad you like. You know what they say about practice - I just keep using it and trying to find new ways. I have some ideas that I haven't used a lot yet - like shooting with the intention of cropping off a chunk off one edge of the frame, to give you off-center fishiness... but really, part of it is playing with the fish a bit and thinking about scenes where it would be a good idea.

Here's a few more, hopefully these are all ones that I haven't posted here before...



Here's an example of cropping - the bottom was lopped off so that only the top has the fisheye look.





Here's another one with some cropping - both top and bottom here.



...and of course, they can be a lot of fun with cars.

Groucho - very nice work. Look for some similar shots from me soon of Hyperspace Hoopla (awesome show, by the way--WOW!) and Kidani's ceiling (speaking of awesome...Sanaa...)

Here's mine for today:

Clicking the picture takes you to its Flickr page, where you can download a full size image, access my camera settings, and/or navigate to my thousand plus other Walt Disney World photos.

I'm loving all these fisheye shots! Nice work, everyone. The fish is still a novelty for me and has stayed on my camera more than it should have the past couple of trips.

Here are a few more from my warped perspective/personality:









^^clicking the image will take you to flickr

nothing like you guys but my 2 best with my fisheye are probably these. I hope to be taking it out for more shooting soon though.

It takes quite a bit of courage to post a photo on this thread. I am definitely not at the level that the rest of you are as photographers. However, I do enjoy my fisheye lens and I had fun taking this shot.
