Re: Taking photos over Aurlandsfjord

The Samyang 8mm fisheye is not a 180 degree view on an Olympus or the Pentax K100D. The Olympus 8 mm f/3.5 fish eye lens is. This is really wide, but it doesn't appear to be fisheye. Did you crop it at all?

I like the green and the lake and the great vantage point. The closest thing to that here in the US is all the way up in Montana near Canada, in Glacier National Park.

I get the feeling that the left side of the lake is cut off by the deck and rail. I want to see the continuation of the lake. The deck and couple could work if you had a higher viewpoint that looked out over the deck rail and into the green forest nearby. That's just my opinion about the composition and viewpoint.
