A fellow PDMLer Paul Sorenson whom I met last year in person requested to have the full size file of this shot. Naturally I gave him the file and he printed it for his wife. I am very pleased as you can see.
Paul being a most capable photographer himself can be contacted by e-mail via this address.
One of my co-workers recently brought his Nikon D300 and 10.5 mm fisheye Nikkor lens. He generously agreed to let me make few shots.
I did not touch the settings in the camera and applied only minimal processing in LR 3.3. However, I thought I might try automatic correction by lens profiles and here is what came out. I should admit to be very positively surprised by the quality of defishing algorithm. In fact I wonder if camera makers can have a special mechanism by which they would show the boundaries of the corrected (defished) image while shooting with the fish eye lenses. It certainly may prove useful.
On that occasion I'd like to thank everyone who's reading my blog. It seems there are at least two dozen people who do so quite regularly. I am most humbled and inspired by your interest. Let's hope that the next year will prove photographically fruitful to everyone who's having fun taking pictures.
Boris Liberman is my name and I am a software engineer. You know, like that Dilbert fellow. I don't think I have any specific shooting preference, though I like to shoot nature, street life and I like to travel.
Greetings and welcome to my modest corner of the world wide web.
