These are about architecture as seen by the wide-eyed fish. If you find them in anyway mind-bending
(visions, guilt, euphoric etc.) then you must close the thread immediately as I can not be held responsible ...

This kind of line bending is characteristic of fisheye photography, even when the angle of view is only moderately wide. These are not intended to be rectilinear views, which have their own off-axis stretching. Only #5 approximates a rectilinear image and could reasonably taken with a rectilinear wide-angle lens with a similar result, and could be bent into a reasonable rectangular projection in post.

Too true. I like the 'barrel' distortion, some people don't. Of course the fish has its place, in cathedrals and architectural situations especially. The big advantage is its 180' angle of view when you need it.
