I imagine it isnt crisp enough to meet the challenge. Whats cool is how deep the dof actually is...considering I was shooting at 2.8. Fisheye's are FUN!

Great use of the fisheye. What a fun lens to have but have you noticed that it's kinda hard to come up with non-standard type shots. Well done.

Nice perpective!
06/17/2004 07:04:13 PM
This is a great photo, really draws you eye around the photo! Good job.

just fantastic. i agree with lee--this is inspiring--and definitely going on my list of B&W prints to order!

One of the most creative and inspiring uses of a fisheye lense I've seen in a long time, congrats!

I love this distorted view.
06/13/2004 04:00:07 PM
Wild angle, the B&W is the best. 10!
06/13/2004 02:53:01 PM
Delightfully quirky and baffling. 9

oh my, thats one of the most visually pleasing shots I've seen in quite a while
I keep tilting my head back and forth
06/11/2004 06:46:52 PM
This is a really cool idea but the contrast or the lighting or something is out of control, it's just a little funky but I really like the concept
06/11/2004 05:22:50 PM
Woah? Looks like the view of some drunk dude trying to get to his flat. Very cool perspective. Fisheye lens? Too bad that second stair is out of focus.
06/11/2004 02:06:12 PM
Very unique entry, and absolutely stunning.
06/11/2004 04:56:45 AM
Wild shot, 9
06/11/2004 01:17:45 AM
Very interesting perspective and nice composition. I like that is it in black and white. (10)
06/10/2004 11:59:52 PM
cool shot
06/10/2004 01:25:44 AM
Nice contrast, great textures. I love the distortion on the stairs. Beautiful piece of art. It me of an Escher drawing.
06/09/2004 09:51:11 PM
Nice Fisheye
06/09/2004 06:54:29 PM
Love this photo and tilte. The fish-eye effect gives it a story-book appearance.
06/08/2004 04:46:04 PM
I'm not going to say much because there is not much to say, PERFECT, this shot has become one of my all time favorite photograph, EVER !
06/08/2004 12:31:32 PM
This picture makes me dizzy....nice shot though.
06/08/2004 12:59:18 AM
Wonderful composition, almost Escher-like. 10.
06/07/2004 07:26:51 PM
Really excellent submission for this challenge in many respects. I love all the angles. You have a great eye. Good luck - 9
06/07/2004 05:58:54 PM
artistic composition nice dof
06/07/2004 05:35:56 PM
This is crazy--makes me dizzy. Reminds me of David Bowie in Labyrinth.
06/07/2004 05:19:35 PM
If this was in "unusual perspective" I'd have scored it an 8 or 9....

I think this has real nice commercial potential if blown up larger, to poster-size.

06/07/2004 03:54:10 PM
very escher...
06/07/2004 03:03:01 PM
Remind me Vertigo, the movie. Love it
06/07/2004 02:22:56 PM
I've got a bad case of virtigo... but seriously this is great. It's a wonderful take on the challenge theme and one of my top choices.
06/07/2004 09:57:38 AM
This is one of my favorite shots in this challenge. Not only is this photo crisp and clear throughout, but it also shows a strong sense of style and creativity. Really nice job.
06/07/2004 09:56:12 AM
This is a classic Escher style - really creative to implement it photographically, and the b/w is perfect for it.
06/07/2004 09:55:32 AM
Very Escher-like. Wow. I'm not wild about this high of contrast normally, but I think that the more I look at it, it really fits this image. Let me know if you make a print of this available. It's really, really cool. 10
06/07/2004 06:01:45 AM
Nice composition. The use of a very wide angle lens helps to stay in focus indeed.
Anyway the first step seems slighly blurry IMO. I had be nice to see sharply the wooden texture of it.
06/07/2004 02:53:22 AM
This is fantastic. Great composition and the black and white really focuses your attention on the shapes and curves that make this such a strong and compelling image. If I could vote, I'd give it a 10. I hope you win.
06/07/2004 12:31:33 AM
Awesome distortion! Looks like something Escher would draw.
Fisheye lens, or digital warp?
06/07/2004 12:26:46 AM
Very interesting perspective
