Sunrise over Dominica Island taken from the deck of the Serenade of the Seas cruise ship. The ship was denied permission to dock due to rough seas. Shots were taken just before the final decision came down.

Notes: 8 shot panorama taken handheld with the Olympus e-410 and 25mm Pancake lens. Stitched together with Photoshop. Original panorama exceeds the 30,000 axis pixel limit on the dPreview uploader. Had the Nikon D300 with me on the trip but the compact Oly system was perfect for a stroll on the ship's deck.
