No main focal point, I know. But, I really like the monochrome feel in color and shifting it to B&W made it fun. The shore is about 1 mile away and the fish-eye zoom gives it the curves. shot at 10mm.

PP is straight forward - desat, adjusting levels, contrast, highlight and shadows, some dodge and burn, resize, USM

Cool! It's like looking out from one's own personal glass bubble. Excellent tones and you handled the sun very well.

Very cool and very dramatic. I like the fisheye look, I do agree that a slight rotation to staighten the shot(if that makes sense with a fisheye:) would make the shot feel more balance but this that's jmo, very nice shot!

I LIKE the bowl effect of the extreme wide-angle shot! This has much to attract the eye! :) Great! :)

Wow, that is totally awesome! I love the fact that the clouds look like earth from afar. I can't ever remember seing a fisheye composition like this....it works wonderfully.

I love those backlit clouds, it really gives the photo a nice tonal depth.

Ahhh the fisheye....

This is interesting in the way it makes me feel like I'm adrift and dizzy from lack of water.

I just plugged on mine the other day for the first time in ages. It was fun and I got one killer shot. Look for it on the front page soon.

Very nice curviness to this beautiful image makes it standout from most sunset photos. To my view the sun is a good focal point. Wonder if rotating this CCW to straighten it out or CW to make the rotation more pronounced would be worthwhile.

WOW - this is a fabulous seascape. I love how the sky also looks like a globe of the world - quite magic!
