Today’s photo is from London.  It’s in my desktop’s wallpaper rotation and I’m liking it more each time I see it.  This was taken in one of the walkways of the London Underground with the fisheye adapter, but the walls are naturally rounded so the effect isn’t really noticeable.  I snapped this very quickly as we were changing lines I wanted an empty walkway but liked the couple walking.  Sony NEX-5N, SEL16mm w/VCL-ECF1 fisheye adapter, 1/60, f/4.0, ISO 320

Today’s photo is off  L.A.’s Union Station.  I used the fisheye adapter and HDR and this photo has a southern California vibe to me with the palm trees & blue sky.  Sony NEX-5N, SEL16mm w/VCL-ECF1 fisheye adapter, f/7.1, ISO 100.

Today’s photo is a two-for since I couldn’t decide on which treatment I liked better.  I took a similar photo to this on my previous trip to Venice, that was at night with a tripod and long exposure.  This time I passed this area in the day with the fisheye adapter on and wanted another take on it.  At the bottom of the picture you can probably see there are steps.  Walking up to take this picture, the ground was wet and as I was getting close to the water’s edge I told myself to be careful and not slip.  I didn’t slip, but I was very close to going in.

I liked how the picture turned out and I really like the colors in the original, but when playing around in Perfect Effects 4 I couldn’t get past the treatment in the second version.  I had to keep and share both.  Sony NEX-5N, SEL16mm w/VCLF1, 1/500, f/5.6, ISO 100.

Today’s photo is a return to Disneyland Paris.  The castle there is so beautiful it’s hard not to take lots of photos of it.  After Disney Dreams the park was closed, so I stuck around to take some photos.  I took this three shot HDR near the entrance to Discoveryland.  Sony NEX-5N, SEL16mm w/VCL-ECF1 fisheye adapter, f/7.1, ISO 100.
