Welcome To The Michael B(a)uble Concert by 


Shooting this bauble on a giant Christmas tree in a public place enabled me to transform the subject itself into a fisheye lens, thereby producing an interesting image of everything behind me. (605 views on 26 May 2011.)

If you look closely, you can actually see a slight coating of dust on the very top of the bauble.

PS: Yes, I know red and green are the traditional Christmas colours, but I didn’t wear that red T-shirt on purpose!

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 70-300mm lens. F5.6, 1/30 sec, ISO 800, focal length 300mm.
