Canon 5DII + 15 mm fisheye @ f/2.8. Post-processing and mucking about in CS5. Provence, August-September 2011.
polly x had a very good idea, which I was reluctant to adopt because:
1) It wasn’t mine
2) I am usually chary of ‘mucking about’ with images in Photoshop
3) I am not very good at 2)
But it is a very good idea. The above image is the result. The original post can be viewed here
(BTW, I have submitted this to the Disabled People and Animals group, although strictly speaking neither the photographer nor the subject suffer from any particular disability other than their all-too obvious genetic ones. I hope the group, a lovely one which deserves far more attention, will let this one in under the wire.)
