I do enjoy your photos!

 

I must I admit that I'm a sucker for shallow WA(wide angle) photos which include lot of surface and "golden hour" sun rays, like yours here. I don't even bother too much about the burnt out whites in the sea-dragon background as the rest is right (colour and composition)

 

I'd would also like to revisit WA(Western Australia), 5 years since last (and only) visit...

 

 

How do you find that insect-fisheye extension? Ease of use, etc...

 

Cheers

Great shots! Loving the Hermit Crab Over-Under as well as the Leafy + Sunburst shot - Outstanding.

 

Cheers,

I love your first shot, and your hermit crab under/over - I find it hard to do these with great stuff both above and below, and you've succeeded here. Did you get any closer to the octopus?

I agree completely , superb shots , but these compacts are small only by their size ^_^

I love especially the over under shots and more of all the first one !

Thanks Oskar, Stephen, Errbrr, Spencer and Girelle: the S95 is a small little bodybuilder indeed ^_^

For my feeling it is a little bit too small, I can still not take it serious when I look at it!

 

Oskar: the inon micro fisheye is fun but not easy. For starters you need the right subject: not too big and not too small, and you have to get very very close (best is 1 mm!) so that rules out a lot of (skittish) subjects as well.

Also the lighting is tricky because you have very little room for strobes and the extreme wide angle makes it easy to get a strobe in the image.!

It is a fun challenge!

 

I am now trying to DIY my own optic fibre ringflash to improve the lighting, I will post a topic if the outcome is a succes...

I agree completely with you , the microfisheye lense is very fun but very difficult to use .And you must be very close also ( perhaps too close ..) . If I can add a comment the aperture must be very small , 8 on the S95/90 seems the best option to decrease blurr wich is a big problem with this lense !!

I'm waiting impatiently to find a big nudi to try to perform an interesting photo !!
