This is another shot taken yesterday with the Raynox WA. This time, the vanishing point is water-based.

I like this shot. The challenge for vanishing points is quite simple for urban landscapes, but it get's more interesting for nature scenes.

Thanks very much, schmiedel. Nature is beautiful but it can certainly be tricky to photograph due to the large range of colors and tones that can appear at once.

Thank you very much for sharing. As you indicated, finding vanishing points in natural settings.

This certainly qualifies for our challenge. I like the ambience.

This is an interesting shot. The vanishing point is definitely there, however I am more interested in other aspects of the photo.

It appears that you used a polarizing filter to darken the sky. Did you do anything to boost the saturation? I am not complaining. I like it. I like everything about this shot. The composition is great as is the color balance, and exposure.

Cal, believe it or not, this is straight out of the camera. The shot was taken with my new Raynox DCR-6600PRO WA converter. Any filter used with this lens causes vignetting so I use no filters with it. The only think I did was set the camera exposure bias to -0.3 to prevent over exposure (the H1 produces beautiful images with this setting). There was no need for PP except a tiny bit of cropping to reduce the sky portion of it.
