Beavertail Park fisheye

IMG_4753_4_5_6_7_pt

Below are 8 sets of photos, the first taken with a fisheye lens (the degree of fisheye effect on the horizon being large or small) and the second straightened and cropped through software. I wanted to see what the result would be and welcome your comments on them. For other Beavertail Park photos check out here and here.

Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest Lyn, She Of Great Taste In All Things But Men, who does most of the photo selection. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.

  1. Beautiful set of photos, very difficult to choose a favourite. For me the 5th picture in the set is my favourite. The fish-eye effect sends me a global impression. As if you’re looking at the scene from outer space. Well done!

    • Thank you so very much! That is incredibly kind and gracious of you to take the time to leave a message.

      For me, I am torn…I’m not sure if I prefer the fisheye or the straightened version…and my informal poll is 50%/50%. 🙂 In the end all I do is count myself lucky that I was there at such an auspicious moment and managed to capture some nice images.

    • Thank you so much! To be honest, I must have a dozen or so sets of pictures awaiting selection, post-processing and then putting on the web. Sometimes what to *do* with a picture is more daunting than taking it in the first place! 🙂

    • I am so glad that you like them. I have a series of Alexander Lake coming up at sunset and am already planning a fall shoot. One of the benefits of photography is that I have started to look around me more closely…and to my utter astonishment, New England has proven itself to be utterly stunning! 🙂

    • You know, I never thought of that, but now that you mention it I will never look at that picture again without thinking about it! 🙂
