Writing with Light

Montreal Lights

Project 52 Entry #28

We were in Montreal this past weekend for my son’s hockey tournament and stayed downtown at the Chateau Champlain. In anticipation of our weekend getaway I decided to rent a fisheye lens which I’ve always wanted to try out. This is the view of  downtown from our hotel room.  The Fisheye was the Canon 15mm…let me know what you think.

  2. I think it turned out extremely well Edith. I one how the fisheye distorts the image. Adds interest to the scene.

  6. Outstanding work, Edith. Being fisheye crazy, I’m probably biased here, but this is excellent. Nice wide shot and slight curvature to the buildings = winner!

    You’re probably hooked now huh? LOL

  20. I think you did a fine job with that Fisheye. I have never shot one, although would like to rent one and try it out sometime. What did you think about the renting process? How long do you get it for?

    • Thanks Adam. The renting process was very easy. One of the big camera store chains here in Toronto, Henry’s, rents equipment through a subsidary. You order the lens or equipment you want and they will deliver it to a store close to you. It was an easy process. I rented the fisheye just for the weekend but I’m thinking of renting the Canon 70 – 300 L for a week in January when we go to Quebec City.
