Sunset and sunrise on the Mediterranean taken with various Fuji X lenses

All of the photos here were taken of one sunset and one sunrise. The various interpretations are a result of using different Fuji lenses on the X-T1, by varying the timing of the scene, or by adding some post-processing technique in Photoshop.

Taken just after sundown as the first stars appeared, this image was shot with an ISO of 1600 with the Fuji 18-55mm zoom. Shortly afterwards I switched to the Fuji 35mm to take advantage of its faster f/1.4 aperture, which allowed me to keep the ISO low.

I didn't bring a fisheye with me on this trip, opting intead to add a fisheye distortion in Photoshop instead. This image was taken with the Fuji 14mm. 

This panorama is a composite of two photos assembled with Photomerge in Photoshop. Doing this instead of simply cropping a photo resulted in a much larger image size (70mb) for the finished photo.

The same scene as those above, but taken with the Fuji 55-200mm zoom at the 200mm (300mm eqivalent) focal length.
I am at sea most of the time and have very poor to no internet service so posting to the blog will be sporadic at best for the next few days.
