This is a shot from a couple of days ago looking across the lake at Bernheim Forest in central Kentucky. Camera is the FZ7, and I was experimenting with an old fisheye attachment (Ambico 0310, 58mm thread adapted down to 52). I zoomed through the fisheye enough to get past the round, blurry edges and and what is left is about the equivalent of a 20mm lens in the 35mm world. The field of view goes more than 1/3 of the way up the sky. I straightened out the circular distortion in pp and bumped the color and contrast.

Very dramatic!!! Would have liked to see just a little more ground, but I like it.

I really like it.

You see so many sunset pics that you become blase but this one really works for me.

The sky seems to reach up forever.

Well done.

Max

Thanks for your comments everyone. As a couple of people mentioned, it would be nice to see more foreground, or even some mirroring of the sky in the water. However, I was seeing it primarily as a sky scene when taking the photograph, and there wasn't much to see at the bottom of the frame which I cropped away - just black. (A small version of the full original unprocessed 3:2 frame is attached here). I took quite a few shots at that time, and the resulting one is the one I liked best. Maybe I could leave a little more of the black at the bottom of the frame to let the viewer know that the lake does not indeed go on and on.

Another shot I could have tried would be to walk down to the edge of the water (I was about 150ft away) and get some mirroring of the sky. But by the time I did actually go down there, the whole sky had changed. Such is the nature of shooting sunsets.
