    About

    Saturday I spent some quality time with my 12 - Soon 13 - year old daughter Caitlin.
    We traveled by train to the station of Liège Guillemins (Luik), this futuristic train station
    was designed by the famous Spanish architect Calatrava and it is a photographers dream, anywhere you look you wish to take another shot. Due to it's attractiveness to the camera, this station has quickly become a magnet for photographers, we didn't count the number of photographers we encounters but there sure were a lot.

    While I was using my new 60D I let Caitlin use my 'old' 400D, photography is new for her but I'm sensing some talent there ;)

    Shooting a place that has been shot so many times before becomes a challenge to come up with something new, I decided to use my fisheye primarly since I hadn't found any fisheye versions of this station on flickr yet and a place like this is a fisheye dream...

    There are plenty pictures of this place to come and my daughter started her own stream to upload her first step in photography (see below).

    ° My photoshop tutorial on Layers, Masks, Selections & Channels.
    ° Channel mixer tutorial to remove lens flare spots.
    ° Vertorama stitching
    ° High pass sharpening.
    ° My portfolio on fluidr

      Nice work "taming" the excessive fisheye effect here. I've tried free transform but also have good luck with DxO Optics pro.

      I didn't used the free transform to tame the fisheye, just to straighten some lines that were off the horizontal or vertical axis that I wished to have, however hard you try with a fisheye it is notoriously difficult to get things absolutely straight.
