I think this is a great shot! It shows how to use a fisheye lens effectively. I think for many people they think of the fisheye lens as a novelty lens, probably because of all the novelty shots taken with fisheye lenses to which we are exposed. I'm sure we've all seen great pictures like this that were taken with fisheye lenses but never realized it.
Shots like this inspire me to be more creative with my fisheye lens.
