Taken inside the Utah State Capitol using a Canon 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye lens.

De-fished the image by converting the raw image using DxO Optics Pro.

This is a single exposure. I enhanced the lighting using Nik Color Efex Pro 3.0 combined with a little bit of dodging and burning by hand. I felt that this actually produced much better results than what I got out of HDR.

Great perspective! Wide angle was definitely the way to go.

I really need to get up there and see the restored version for myself. I like the wide angle here and the colors / tone work well. Hope this does well for you and good luck!

Amazing perspective, saturation seems a bit overdone to me, though.

Very nice, there is a bit of distortion, I assume from a wide angle lens that is distracting
