I find the pictures kind of disorienting. Stick with a tegular lens.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I haven't really paid attention to this style out in the wild, FYI. My thoughts: I like them well enough, especially the first example, but I'd also figure they're a gimmicky trend that could get old quicker than quick. I feel vaguely nauseated when watching inversions sometimes, and these photos have that effect ("disorienting" is a good word). I'd say to use sparingly, or just quit if you're not feeling it!

They're fine. They look nice. Just don't take all your pictures that way.

I like them. Especially if they are like your second picture. That is something I would be able to hang on my wall. It shows lots of movement in a still frame.

I personally think they're pretty cool, I'd say a couple here and there in a TR are cool. Like, if you had one from each ride/coaster at the park. It would make the TR more interesting, as if they weren't great already.

I enjoy seeing them, but only occasionally. I like the Wildfire one because it shows off the scenery and setting of the coaster. The other ones are good, but there is something about them I don't like as much, not sure what it is though.

I actually like the photos. I like how you can see the entire surroundings from that point of view when normal photos only focuses on what's directly in front of you. :)

In certain shots, they provide an unique perspective on the elements of the ride and the 'tiny planet' effect gives it a nice touch. On others, it kinda makes me nauseous from the distortion.

I'm pretty indifferent about these. The SDC pick looks neat, but the other two just look odd.
