I love this. VR180 is one of the best new developments in 3d. The subject is well suited to the fish eye distortion.   Posted: 03/04/2023 15:53:26

The fisheye lens really makes it have a lot more depth. I assume the balcony is really straight. Good color, focus and presentation. Great image.   Posted: 03/09/2023 19:09:07

Yes, it is straight. A square room with balcony.   Posted: 03/22/2023 01:54:01

What a wonderful building and it has been made more dramatic bu the use of the fisheye lens and the well chosen time of day has also got the light in the right direction to bring out the detail in the carving.   Posted: 03/26/2023 14:17:39

This is a gorgeous Haveli and thank you for including the link. The structure's intricate details are amazing and show up very well in 3D. I can't image the time and skill in doing such detailed carving. I like the fisheye approach also to give the building a slightly different appearance.

The image is sharp, nicely exposed, and has rich color.   Posted: 03/28/2023 19:21:21
