Would be more appealing (to my eye) if the extension was set further out completing the circle. That being said it's a cool picture that can be seen as from the camera's perspective

I realized after about 4 shots that I was getting vignetting, and zoomed out.

However I realized that this image had a certain quality to it. Without the framing of the lens it would be a rather boring photo.

I am curious if others think the photo is worth saving.


Also got me thinking of what you could do with a full frame camera shooting a DX wide angle lens.

I find the baffles rather disturbing...
