View of a Small World Fisheyed

View of a Small World Fisheyed
The Shot
This is the view from the Mirador del Rio in the far north of Lanzarote looking across to the small adjoining island of Graciosa. It was the hottest day of my trip with temperatures up to 25C.

The Samyang 8 mm fisheye lens I have is of the diagonal type which fills the frame. Pointed straight ahead and depending on the scene it can almost look normal. However if the camera is pointed upward in a landscape the horizon will curve upward at the sides. Conversely if the camera is pointed downwards the horizon will curve down at the sides.

This distortion helps to create the illusion of a picture taken on a very small world.
The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a Samyang Fisheye lens at 8 mm. 3 raw images 2EV spacing. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.

This picture was enhanced with HDR processing and Topaz and Photoshop to bring in more detail.
Full details of the processing together with before and after images are on my Blog see Edwin Jones Photography Blog
