Completely forgot about the FS. And as I scramble through my captures, realize that I didn't do all that much shooting in December. This is from an architectural shoot I did mid-month, of the historic Park Plaza Hotel. An awesome venue that is being renovated. It still rents out for special events - this is the main staircase, which was being set up for a huge wedding. There are four main ballrooms, two on this level, to the left, and two on the level at the top of the stairs, one to the left, the other to the right. In the basement is a pool which was used in the 1932 Olympics.

It's been a while since I entered an image shot with my D90 (which is the one that fits my fisheye). Not expecting much from this entry, but there you have it. I had a blast shooting here.

I've always detested the distortion of a fisheye on buildings, however there are moments when it can be used to good great effect. This is one of them. The D90 still rocks imo. 7.

That's one serious UWA and an unique POV to use it.

What a weird view to see the windows at the top.
