    Awesome! Great shot. Is the fish-eye distortion from the lens alone? – Jakub Sisak GeoGraphics Nov 21 '11 at 19:10

    Great shot. I love how peculiar it looks at first, yet it's something quite ordinary. Well done. – Vian Esterhuizen Nov 23 '11 at 15:33

Original, larger version had images not cropped, because there was no limit on aspect ratio.

Technical info: Three shots at 100mm f/4.5, converted from RAW with Pentax Photo Laboratory, resized and cropped with XnView, arranged and "unsharp mask" in Gimp. Border color is the average color of middle shot.

  • What is the relationship of the first image to last two (which are the same framing with different focus, right?) – mattdm Nov 21 '11 at 21:03

    @mattdm same tree, another branch (closer to camera). And yes, you're right. – Imre Nov 21 '11 at 22:56
