The Tower of Hercules (Galician and Spanish: Torre de Hércules) is an ancient Roman lighthouse on a peninsula about 2.4 kilometers (1.5 mi) from the centre of A Coruña, Galicia, in north-western Spain. Until the 20th century, the tower itself was known as the "Farum Brigantium". The Latin word farum is derived from the Greek pharos for the Lighthouse of Alexandria. The structure is 55 metres (180 ft) tall and overlooks the North Atlantic coast of Spain. The structure, almost 1900 years old and rehabilitated in 1791, is the oldest Roman lighthouse in use today. There is a sculpture garden featuring works by Pablo Serrano and Francisco Leiro.[2]
The Tower of Hercules is a National Monument of Spain, and since June 27, 2009, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.[3] It is the second tallest lighthouse in Spain, after the Faro de Chipiona. (5 years and 1696 days ago)

Star Ferry Temninal and clock tower

I decided to include a lot more of the surrounding, as the clock tower is now totally dwarfed.

The fish eye distortion of the lens combined with the HDR gives this a very disconcerting effect...interesting.

author says:

No distortion...just magic :P
Thanks

LOL - Fire your magician...Different cameras have different amounts of rectilinear, or barrel distortion which varies by model and focal length. Some cameras can adjust for it internally, some require external plug-ins like Fisheye-Hemi for Photoshop. But magic it ain't...

Cropping the left would lessen the distraction somewhat, and while it would square your image, the improvement in overall composition might be worth the trade off...

author says:

I thought you were suggesting a true fish eye lens... I know...thanks for the input on the crop.
