A view of the forward turrets onboard the Battleship Texas, Houston, Texas, USA.

Spent a day on the Battleship Texas and used nothing but my fisheye lens. Had a hard time deciding which image to go with, had a lot to choose from. Worried that people will not realize that this shot really is a super wide-angle photograph. I did not de-fish this at all, if you frame everything perfectly there is little to no noticeable fisheye distortion and only a fisheye could have gotten this shot.

Hello from the Critique club

An appealing image that meets the challenge

Iíve seen this ship before, you managed to kill two challenges in one go! This is a great shot Ronnie, it works well and as you say with the very careful composition you have made here the distortion is minimal but still pleasing. I would prefer to see less sky but angling the lens down would have introduced severe distortions but, to be honest, I actually see this as a creative device that could be deliberately exploited. You could stray from the default format to crop some sky out but perhaps you prefer it this way anyway. I do like the mono processing but wish the decks hadnít been blown but its not a major issue. The only other comment I have might be to clone out the pylon and building for a cleaner horizon but again its not major and they do balance each other.

Thanks for a great entry Ronnie
