Thank you! I love the Zenitar fish-eye. It's not for everything, but if you get creative it's fantastic. Affordable too when compared to the competition.

Oh, I want to know more! Anything that hooks up to Canon EOS bodies? I'll look them up myself later.

I recommend Helios. Very good bright lens. Ideal for portraits. 58mm F/2.0

And in general - any lens with M42 thread!

I looked it up and it seems like I might be giving it a try if I can find something affordable. Sounds like a great lens, especially for the prices I've been seeing.

Is sort of similar to the Canon 50mm F/1.8 at all? Haven't yet seen the fulls specs.

Yes, it's something similar, but bokeh effect on the Helios better than on Canon lens.
This lens from Canon is not suitable for Manual Focus.

Well, I just won an auction for a Helios 58mm F/2.0, so I will find out for myself! =D
Looking forward to that bokeh. 1.8 on the 50mm is nice, 1.4 is even better, but the photos I've seen taken with the Helios have their own uniqueness.
Also, whoa! Some of these lenses have ridiculous street value, or are just plain overpriced... Helios 40-2 1.5/85mm for example!

:+fav: ...I can never get enough of bridge pictures! This one is really unique because it really does look like a steel spider web! Too bad those damn tourists had to jump into the shot!

Thanks! I know, the fish-eye lens really helped me out there. It reminds me of spider-man... haha =D
And yeh... Tourists. I tried to include as few as possible, but it wasn't easy. I was going to photoshop them out, but decided against, should I have? It's not all that difficult... haha

No way... the tourists give the bridge dimension and break the coldness of concrete and steel.

I think they are a good inclusion. Great photo as well!

I know what you mean, thanks for the comment. That's what I was thinking when I finally snapped that shot. But since I was not sure if I was going to post-process the photo I settled for fewer people in the shot... haha
Otherwise if I was completely committed to seeing the cold man-made structure juxtaposed with the tourists/local running about their business I would have used a bit different of an angle and, well, waited for more people to fit into the frame...haha
But, yeah, I'm rather happy with the way the photo came out, even if I could make up my mind about this on the spot. =D

I think people in landscape and architecture pictures are personal preference. I always try to snap pictures with as few people in them as possible (preferably none), but my husband doesn't like pictures without people. Either way works! :D Don't worry about photoshopping them out, they look just fine! (As long as they're not posing)
