Fisheye Old Main
Another shot from my first phot expedition with my new 10mm fisheye lens. I kept my shadow out of the picture by standing in the shadow of a tree. I converted this to B&W in Picasa with a red filter and lightened the image considerably to bring out detail in the shadows. I'd probably mask those areas and lighten them to keep the sunlit face of Old Main a little bit darker if I were using the GIMP or Photoshop. This image was taken at 10mm focal length with an exposure of 1/250 seconds at f/11, ISO 400.
