I have been using my fisheye lens a lot lately, after having neglected it for the last couple years. Funny how things go out of style, only to come back in.
Taken just this morning at the traditional market near my home. A woman peruses the fresh fish offered for sale. No matter which she chooses, it will be delicious.

I really like this one, especially the fish diagonal, but you know, I really think it would have increased its strength by cropping out the upper woman's head at shoulder level. In order to match exactly that right hand side bodyless head.
I'm quite sure of that statement, try it and you'll see on your own.
I quite like your recent fisheye efforts. I once stated your framing needed more space to fit my taste, something you can't avoid now with a fisheye.
btw, are you finished humming "Zanzibar" tune? ...Oops sorry to put it back in mind, now you'll have to whistle...

Another fine shot, Darren. A fishey for fish heads... Luko may have a oint concernng a daring crop of the person on the left. The woman's cropped head on the right is brilliant. Very nice work and once again sadly underrated in my view...

Good daily life and food shot. The perspective is good and I like your crop a lot. It is a pure life scene without any posing, that's what I like so much. The fish on ice makes me hungry.
