My primary concern with using the fisheye is similar to my concern with black and white pictures: these photos have an arty feel to them without much effort. I like fisheyes, and I think they're great for landscapes. Just like I stopped taking black and white pictures after Ali called me on my excessive number in April of last year, though, I think I'm going to retire the lens for a little while after I'm done with the Berlin pics. I think I'm not going to mature much as a photographer until I learn to take good pictures without a crutch.
