Love this! I love the perspective, and the precision. I almost expect the people to match on either side and because they don't it blends reality into pattern. I agree that it does look surreal.

This has a surreal feel to it. Certainly fun to look at - helps that the technicals are in place (focus, exposure, etc..). Good eye to see this and capture it well.

One of the most original comps of the British Museum I've seen. Thanks for a most refreshing and outstanding perspective!

Well done Matt.
This could easily have placed higher and would have ribboned in most comps.

Great framing and composition. It makes me feel like I'm looking at the workings of a human "ant" colony. 10 from me and good luck in the challenge.

Wow. My favorite so far. [9]

imo you have achieved a great sense of balance and design here.There is a sense of the surreal here, due to your choice of lens - you've managed to capture something that with a different lens or/and perspective, may have become a rather mundane shot.The more I look at it the more I like it. 10 Great job! Thanks for sharing!

I took a panorama from that exact same spot. But your fish-eye view really gives a sense of the vast space - 8

Very impressive shot. Great time to use the fisheye, and the architecture is really different and interseting. Unique view.

Good capture of unique architecture. Lighting and contrast is complimentary and natural frame works well. I am curious to find out what and where this building/museum is. Good job.
