When leaving port, I typically spent time on one of the upper decks with the 70-300mm lens on the camera to allow me to pick out details on the shore as we passed. Last Friday, though, as we left Key West, I went the other direction and shot with the fisheye giving some interesting “curvature of the Earth” effects.
The secret here is to ensure that you always keep the horizon in the top half of the frame. The lens distortion is such that this causes the horizon line to curve in a “natural” looking way. The minute the line drops into the bottom half, however, the sides curve up and you end up with a strangely concave planet!
