Very cool. Fish eye lens? I always enjoy those types of shots. #17 looks almost more like a hyper-realistic painting than a photo, very cool.
Yes, most of these are taken with the samyang 8mm fish-eye lens, good call! I'm a fan of HDR or Pseudo HDR which makes them look a little surreal.

All of them are very nice though, i like them!
Thanks! They're all photos, I just edited to pull out the high dynamic range of the D7000 (detail in the shadows as well as in the highlights). Some are HDR and some are Pseudo HDRs as well and some are straight out of the camera.
Thanks, It takes a lot of practice with the fish-eye to get results that minimize the fish-eye look. The watermark is placed on my images by my website and I use photomatix for combining the images into an HDR and Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop to edit them down the rest of the way. I typically do 75% of all my editing in adobe camera raw.
