What is that? sand trap? :)
 
hehe, now we need to put fish in there ;)
 
I am not a pro photographer so just wondering if the top left is a function of the camera/lens. The three end buildings appear to be leaning backwards. Optical illusion?
 
Wendell,
Wide-angle lenses inherently introduce a kind of "distortion" in the image. Same distortion happens in our eyes at the corner of our view -- corrected by our brain. Further details are explained on wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wide-angle_lens.
 
Wendel,
An even better explanation is illustrated here:

Interesting how the wide angle lens makes the surface of the water appear convex, almost like a very large contact lens
 
Looks like the Ritz Carlton at Half Moon Bay
