Fisheye @ sea

I revisited some shots from my Baltic trip to see what useful shots I have of the vessel. I quite liked this one:



I have some more fishy shots, and I like them a lot. Have to work them up for posting, though.

Here's another one (with the kit lens 18-35), I might have shown before, it's 1/4 s and demonstrates what SR can do:


I like the light on that one.

Here's the funnel of the Maria S. Merian with our institute's logo (taken with the Sigma 105 mm macro)

I second that. A great set, to be proud of. I specially like Nr.1.
The relief on the deck, almost looks liquid.

Best regards,

The colours are great in all of them, but the first is superb.

I like the first one too, well it is a fisheye, so how could I not like it ?

At first look, I thought the ship was sinking

True!

Yes, as Martin mentioned, the foreground looks almost liquid and the superstructure does look quite flat from that perspective.

It looks a bit higher in this one:


And also the space in front of the yellow circle doesn't seem so vast anymore...

No. 1 is superb.

It has inspired me to take mine sailing.

Very impressive deck paint as well

Great shots Ralf, you have an absolutely uncanny ability to to capture the light and dynamic range in a scene. I feel like every shot I take is underexposed and flat in comparison

That's a tremendous set of graphic images Ralf. No. 1 is really impressive with that foreground and squahsed superstructure.
The last one you posted is truly exciting. Just shows how the the choice of different angles and lenses with a camera can place a vastly different perspective on the same view.

Great set as always Prieni. Took me a moment or two to work out what was happening in the first shot. Normally I would say I am not a big fan of fish-eye lenses but between you, Galoot and whoever posted the spooky trees photograph a little while back I am revising my opinion.

Best wishes, Kris.
