Joe, did you take this image with a fish eye lens? I love how the sides bend to the pier! Congrats on your stunning finalist!

Thank you, everyone, for the awesome comments! They are very much appreciated!

Joannie, yes, this image was accomplished with a fisheye lens (10.5mm Nikkor) and HDR (Photomatix 4), both of which can easily be overdone! The fisheye provided the virtual shore-to-shore (180 degree) coverage that I wanted with controlled distortion (i.e. not egregious) which I like to employ as a deliberate pictorial element in some of my images.

Thanks again, all!

-Joe
