The beauty of Caribbean Sea

Another fisheye madness from me:-) This is Cancun. Our hotel room was facing the ocean, and I had the best sleep ever during that week: it was a windy side with strong waves, just few feet away from us, and we slept like a babies with sound machine.

Now, would you guess: is this an HDR (multiple exposures combined into a one), or just a single shot? The answer is simple, but anyway. I'll tell it later:)

Enjoy the ocean!

The Answer(s):
This is a single exposure, not an HDR. BTW, it is possible to have an HDR with waves, check this out: http://goo.gl/Sj5GS . This is a multiple exposure HDR with lot of motion going on.

The curvature distortion is what fisheye does. Not a Photoshop:-) Plus, earth is a sphere:))

Keep up the fish-eye work, Alex. You are inspiring me to dig out my odd old lens and get it working. To do so I put an old 55mm, f-1.4 Super Takumar on my Canon EOS, then attach the fish-eye adapter to that. Yes, it is glacially slow, but it works (after a fashion) and it was paid for back in 1970 (!) so I use what I have. Your work is making me look at things with the fish-eye in mind and realization of possibilities is what following a Master is all about. Thank for the inspiration!
 
Evidencia clara de que la tierra es redonda......jajaja.
 
Single shot for sure. Nice one. Know what you mean about great night sleep with ocean in your ears.
 
I say is a very well processed single shot. Weird and cool compo!

who cares weather it was a single or multiple expose it is a great picture
 
I'd say single shot, too. If it is hdr, then very well done and very subtle... but my money's on single: The speed of movement in the waves would make for uncrisp edges in hdr.
 
The water looks amazing love the color
 
ya well this is nice, the beautiful earth
 
This is absolutely striking.
 
where did you take this amazing photos..?its wow...!!!!Good landscapes

This reminds me of the 70's when I first developed an interest in photography. I wish I could find the passion for it I had back then! Lovely shot, thanks.

Im guessing single exposure here...?
 
That rocks. How did you take that picture, man?
 
It looks as if the whole world is as small as a town!!!!!!

Made me think of the Genesis flood where the "fountains of the great deep were broken up" and covered the earth like a giant tsunami.

Thank you everyone! Comments and shares are appreciated!
 
so its a lense that creates the sphere shape in the fisheye pics?
 
Images like this make me imagine the rest of the sphere and then the Earth starts looking so small! :)
 
this is beautiful! great perspective.
 
oh my lord that is very very beautiful
thank you alex
