This kind of view is one of my favorite applications for a fisheye lens. Thanks for sharing.

Great shot, but a night shot would be pretty breath taking.

I love these shots taken with a fisheye because it looks like you can see the curvature of the earth

Nicely done - good perspective here.
I do agree with the evening/low-light suggestion though.
