Beautiful wide angle shot, congratulations! #9749881

Joseph M. Muench 10/21/2011 5:46:49 AM

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!
