Austin, Texas – Westcave Preserve (HDR)

This past year I took the same shot on a different visit to Westcave when it was a nice sunny morning.  This is one with some clouds.  Tough call on which is better.  I like em both.  The fisheye is the key to the shot.  I use my fisheye oftern and if you were thinking of getting one for your bag…do it!  I have not thought twice about buying it.  I know we all have a lens or two that just sits there and never gets used.  For me its my 50mm 1f/1.4.  I really shoudl pack it sometimes, it is  a great lens!  Back on fisheyes…I bought mine used for only $350!!  Check Ebay and see what is available for your camera.  Once you have it, it becomes a favorite lens!  I have even seen some Photographers on Flickr…all they use is a fisheye! I am an official Fisheye Fanatic!

  2. Looks like an oasis in the middle of a desert. HDR really does enhance the look of reflected water. Beautiful.
