So you want an "I'm indifferent" and "they're okay" options??? What is the difference?!?!? You either like them... or don't really give a shit. *sigh*

Sometimes I ask myself why I bother asking other people for opinions...

Well I like it. I've always been a fan of the fish eye lens photos. i see it as another way to show off the coaster like the 360 povs. Honestly, I love to have the first or third photo as a poster.

I may be in the minority, but I actually really like them! They have a unique perspective. I'd love to see more!

See! THIS is why I like to ask people. Personally, I'm sort of "meh" about them also, but knowing that there may be at least 40% of the people who would really like them makes me at least want to look at our 360 footage more carefully and see if any photos stand out (I actually like the cropped tiny planet ones I did focusing on certain key features, like the Patriot one with the shadow) and it also gives a bit more variety in our updates.

Please continue with your thoughts and musings on these types of photos. It is greatly appreciated!

They are 'artistic,' from an avant garde photographer's standpoint. But I do feel that the best shots, for most coaster enthusiasts, are those that "put the viewer right in the coaster." (I suppose that there is room for BOTH types, but I favor the 'classic' photo shoots.)

P.S. Kudos to you for introducing us to new formats! :)

Not really a fan(too random and cluttered looking), but with some editing I think some of them could be awesome. Might be more trouble than it's worth.

Eh, I'm not a fan. It's kind of interesting looking, maybe, but it's not at all useful. I do love the 360 videos you make though, where I can move my phone around and see different views. Keep making those.

I really like them, it's a unique perspective to see all the surroundings from the ride. I don't watch videos for rides I may actually ride some day that I haven't rode yet but I would definitely check out these kinds of pictures.
