Grand entrance hall. I had not set up the 16mm fisheye properly, and it couldn't focus past 4 feet.
I brought a new to me 16mm f/2.8 Nikkor fisheye that requires a rear filter to be in place for it to be able to focus properly. Without the filter, it can't focus beyond 4 feet. I hadn't checked the image quality using this lens at long distances before taking it on this trip. Darn! The Breakers, Newport, RI, USA
