Closing Time

This image looked good to start with and I thought I would have a little "Topaz" fun with it.....
I captured this image in Saskatoon in mid December 2008 and it never made it to any of my galleries.
Looking back at last year I have many more images that could have and should have been posted.
Over the next few months look for images that should have made it but never did......
I liked this one for just how clean this place looked at closing time and how the Fisheye lens captured the whole image.
My coat even blended into the overall color of the restaurant, if it had any other color it would have ruined the shot.
Everything was in it's place ready for the next day. I guess all I needed was a few models in the booths and a few servers
and this would have made an excellent image for this restaurant's ad's.

Nikon D300 ,Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G AF ED DX Fisheye

Topaz is fun! I use it all the time now! I love this and with the fisheye! Well, BraVo!

This lens really does beg for these dramatic point of view shots and you do it extremely well; another great shot.
