Here's something for you to think about: How was the following photo taken?

Quick guess: reflection on a vase

I'm with Brian - it's reflection on something - maybe a jug?

Cool, was that taken through a dirty window? Or maybe a reflection in a puddle? At first I thought it was a van caught in a landslide! This is hurting my head now, so I'm going to analyse a load more high ISO sample images for our next review!

Nice try, Brian & Gordon.
But it's not a reflection 8)

Another wild guess: shot without a lens?

Ok, if it's not a reflection, then you're photographing through something like a jug?

Either that, or I'd send your latest wide angle lens back as a bad copy!

Hmm... let's see...

<ponders>

I'd guess ISO 200, maybe f/8, something like 1/60"... and that looks like 105mm. Am I right?

PS: Do I get a prize? :P

A shot through a glass container ?
I can see some straight lines of the horizon near the bottom - so it 's not round or oval.
Perhaps thru fisheye front element or glass ?
Do you plan to have this 'game' long ?
Maybe you should rate each guess - so as we know where we are heading ?

Coming closer: shot through something transparent.
And no, I had a lens mounted normally to the body, but the lens is not the reason for this effect :) (and I will not give the lens back either :lol: )
