I live near the country's largest swinging drawbridge -- not that you could tell from this shot that it's a swinging drawbridge.

Wow, great angle. I really like the B&W effect. What is this a picture of by the way? Looks like some kind of bridge, but with such a camera angle, I could be completely wrong.

Hey Ali, you and I posted at the exact time, so my comments probably weren't here when you were viewing. Thanks for coming back.

Jerry, I was out shooting a sunrise that morning that quickly turned to cloudy, blah skies afterwards. I switched over to my camera loaded with B&W film to take this photo. This was facing west and I used my fisheye lens and tilted the camera to get this fun angle. I would've gone for more depth of field, but I was hand-holding my old heavy Minolta, so I had to limit depth to keep the shutter speed down.

This is a great shot! Nice angle, composition, use of the fisheye. I love the closeness of the water in the lower left corner.

I have not quite seen one like this before. Viewpoint gives the feeling of bing on a boat in relation. A very good use of a wide angle... later on.

Nice angle. I think the best fisheye shots are the ones that maintain at least a few straight lines so as to throw off the eye.
Good work.

I love the fisheye look here, and the angle is fantastic. I also really like the blown out skies. Really great shot.

Really look as if the bridge is swing and about to fall. Nice composition and perspective.

Great perspective. The distortion from the fisheye lens almost gives it an abstract feel.

A perfectly compelling composition - as if the fisheye weren't enough, the added tilt really spins the viewer right into the frame! B/W is just the icing on the cake :-)

Yeah, I love the fisheye look here. Actually I would love to have a fisheye, hehe, and take some pictures like this. The bridge looks impressive. Great shot.
