I just gotta ask, what lens did you use ? i mean 8 mm should be pretty distorting on a crop sensor, did you straighten it ?
Oh and is it HDR or just 1 good RAW manipulation ?

Excellent work by the way, i love the dark gritty feel to it

Thank you so much Joe!:D I used a sigma 8-16mm wide angle lens. It is not distorting on a straight shot and will only show distortion if I tilt it up or down. The amount of distortion would depend on how much I tilt the lens. I did not straighten it. It is not HDR, but rather the result of me messing about with things like levels & contrast in photoshop.

That's pretty much what i thought, it's a shame that 8mm turns into ~13mm on a crop body, but that's still great :D, specially compared to the ~29mm equivalent of my kit lens.

I was thinking of a super-wide lens too, i'm just not sure i would use it enough to justify the expense. Do you use it a lot ?

:iconmetal-bender:
Metal-Bender Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2012   Photographer
Yeah, but it's in my price range & I like the result!:D

It's my favorite lens & I use it for most of my photos!:D

Well, I like to take photos of anything that catches my eye. As for finding stuff, I just wander around - kind of getting lost & see what's out there. New York City is a big, wonderful, and dramatic place so your bound to find lots to things to photograph if you wander around there.:D
