Photography in Paradise

peeking from behind the sensor

The Portugese Navy sailing ship “Sagres” docked this week in San Diego and Ray Savage and I went on board and took a lot of photos. The “Sagres” is an Ambassador of Portugal and has circumnavigated the world twice. It has a crew of 139 and is 89.5 meters long and 12 meters wide. The tallest mast is 45.5 meters. Next stop is Hawaii. I used the Canon 7D with a Sigma 8mm circular fish eye lens to make some of the image and then used software to straighten them out.8mm lens image uncorrectdThis is the image from the 8mm lens on the Canon 7D that is uncorrected.

8mm corrected This is the same image but corrected with software.

8mm This is another corrected image.

Christ’s Cross This corrected 8mm images shows the Christ’s Cross symbol on the deck and the mast is over 150 feet tall.

Mast confusion I call this one “Mast Confusion”.
