Some planet-pano's and HDR images of various bits of Cambridge.
The product of not having that much to do this week.
Jeeze, who am I kidding, there are at least three websites that need my immediate attention, a web-shop that's going nowhere lately and a shed load of stuff that needs organising, backing up and clearing out cq deleting.
(but this is more fun)

Number 2 is my favourite. What are you using for the effect?

Cheers peeps.

The "Island" effect is a process in photoshop Steve.

Take a panorama image and make sure the left/right horizon edges are at exactly the same level, they need to match up later.
Change the Image dimentions so that it is square (not important how big) and invert the image (i.e. upsidedown, not negative)
Then use the Polar Coordinates filter on it (Filters - Distort - Polar Coordinates).
A bit of tidying-up, cropping maybe, rotate for effect, blur the sky a bit, sharpen up, check levels, dim the saturation some.

But don't tell anyone, this is just between you and me, don't want just anyone knowing my secrets.

We were in Cambridge at the same time, and just as we were entering King's College, I thought I detected a slight tremor in the time/space continuum ....

..... ace set of pics Joker, I am well impressed, and as to all that photoshop stuff, well, we all knew that already ;)
