Fish out of water

It's so hard to resist the 'fish' puns but I will try to cut back. Anyway, first real outing with the fisheye today, in one of my favourite haunts - the Port of Lyttelton. I am liking the way that one can create these lovely curved 'leading lines' with the fisheye. In this shot the camera was pointing downward leading to a significantly bowed horizon line. A similar shot from the same place but with the camera leveled seemed to loose much of the dynamism created by the curved lines.
Nikon D80, 8mm fisheye, f11, 1/125, three exposures, tinted black and white.
