I recently decided to try out this style of shot/processing, so here are a few I took over the last week, still have about 4 or 5 more to process. Its a slow process!

so is anyone interested in this type of shot? i am thinking of writing a detailed article on how its done, but only if people are interested!

Hey, that's funky; I like it. I would certainly be interested in an article explaining how to do that.

here's my (very amateur) guess - those insanelyultraultraultra wide angle lenses that produce a circular image, rather than a linear one, take a shot of whatever, photoshop yourself out, take a shot of a nice sky, open them both up in photoshop as different layers of the same file, blend layers?

haha, not quite!

I did all of these just using a normal rectilinear Sigma 10-20mm f4.0-5.6 lens. I will get started on the article and will post a link here when its done

Polar Coordinates Fun

I have posted a thread on how to achieve this effect previously back in 2008.

I have also created a free Photoshop action that anyone can download to try with your own images. It was created back during Photoshop CS2 but the action will work with CS3, CS4 and CS5.

Well done jezza - indeed the last one comes out brilliantly - the landscape matter is framed well within the image.
Cool effect.
