Thanks John & martin...

John, the lens is a Nikon 10.5mm f2.8 Fisheye and I have slightly cropped to take the curve away...

Both images are 7 to 9 shots @ 1ev steps combined in photomaitx and finished on CS3.. (HDR)
Handheld...

Aha, that explains the dramatic skies... Excellent work, and not overdone HDR... Especially handheld...

They're both excellent photos and at first I thought no. 1 was the outstanding one but a second look makes any choice too difficult, nicely framed too.
