Small Planetoid Sunset

Small Planetoid Sunset
The Shot

I went to the volcanic plateau which is 1000ft up and inland from Puerto del Carmen to take sunset shots with my fisheye lens.

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 combined with the other worldly look of the Lanzarote landscape 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
