The Architects of Air have produced these amazing walk-through sculptures, and we were lucky enough to have one here in Brisbane for the last few days. I took lensbaby composer with single glass and also the fisheye optics.

Single glass was f/4 and fisheye was f/5.6, necessitating quite high ISO. Canon 5D Mk II handled it well.

Thanks so much juz! I'm really so pleased I went along to this! Three hour wait was the norm if you didn't get there right at the start!

Thanks so much Kim, it was like wandering through blood vessels, with ambient music and coolish breezes from the fans. The volunteers did ask the children to behave like they were in a library, but that was just too much to ask, I think...if you could sit in one of the alcoves and just soak it up, it would have been even more spectacular! I was too busy taking photos to feel the serenity....lol!

That must have been an extraordinary experience, Mel. Wonderful photos. The Lensbaby, especially with the fisheye, was perfect. Btw, I just watched a YouTube video of Architects of Air. Simply amazing.
