Shugborough Hall - Dining Room

 

Taken with the Samyang 8mm fish-eye, which has the advantage of getting everything into the shot, and the disadvantage of getting in stuff you'r rather have left out - what that is in the bottom right, I have no idea. Perhaps a chair back that I didn't even know was there!

Could be Tom's fabled thumb!

Fine use of the fisheye, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ray - could be my thumb, but I think the colour is wrong smile

Such a well preserved place Tom!

The fish eye is perfect for this sort of shot Tom
Tom Wilson: Yes, very useful indoors, but it can be used for landscapes too. For example: http://bit.ly/1ZK9Xzf
But...it makes me realize I should try using mine more often! It's fun, Tom.
Tom Wilson: The Fuji cam makes it a good deal easier to carry extra lenses around - a colleague of mine used the same lens in this shot - http://bit.ly/1ZK9Xzf

The potential is enormous, Tom
Tom Wilson: A very useful little lens for the odd occasion.
Fantastic ability to catch it all Tom, but we have to pay for any gain.
Tom Wilson: Indeed, Chad - I should have checked the viewfinder more carefully!
I am quite amazed at that ceiling, to me the best feature in the room.
Tom Wilson: There's a close up of it tomorrow smile

That is the thing about fish-eyes. They pick up a lot. That there big dining table looks small in the room.
Tom Wilson: All designed to make the visiting nobility feel small smile
Looks like a finger to me!
Tom Wilson: You might be right, Bill - wonder whose?
It gives a great idea of what a beautiful room this is though Tom, extra bits or not.
Tom Wilson: There were a number of really fine rooms in the house.
fine shot. the blue, white and gold of the ceiling is very pleasant, Tom. i like the effects of the 10mm that i have.
Tom Wilson: Yes, I guess the 10mm gets you something pretty close to this.

The eyes are wandering around - I like the paintings of the Italian ruins or of Palmyra.
Tom Wilson: It's an altogether delightful room, I think.

It's delightful, Tom.
Tom Wilson: A very pleasant room.
It does a good job, Tom.
Tom Wilson: A nifty little lens, Frank

I think when I was there, I decided I was going t clear out the fancy table and dinner service and instead use the room as my bike store smile I thought that was your finger bottom right.
Tom Wilson: Rather palatial for the purpose, Alan - but, I imagine you have a full range of bikes to store, for every conceivable terrain!
I kind of like the fisheye look though!
Tom Wilson: It's ideal for this kind of interior shot and for some landscape shots.
