This is an absolutely amazing photomanip, but unfortunately you submitted it to the wrong gallery. I would highly reccommend changing any photo that has been edited beyond contrast, crop and saturation be submitted to the photomanipulation gallery.
But about this piece of art, it is flawlessly done. Excellent job on it, truly amazing show of skill. The making it circular I suppose was not too terribly difficult, but matching it up so flawlessly, and keeping the image from totally distorting so well, that shows the true talent. Excellent job!
That's awesome mate exactly how it should be!
How many shots for the original pano was it? and was it tough joining the beginning and end of the 360 pano? how big was the image before you rescaled??
tell me mooooore!!
it looks awesome mate, an easy for technique, skill and the discipline to finish the job
the original pano was about 14 shots and the size was around 3,000 X 14,000 pixels. when i expaned the image in photoshop to 14,000 X 14,000 my computer actually didnt have enough memory to convert to polar coordinates so i had to shrink it to around 9,000 X 9,000. once there it converted nicely.
as far as getting the ends to line up, i created a copy of the original layer and then lined that one up with the orignal and then cropped that spot.
once i converted to polar coordinates the actual size of the image was quite small: around 2,000 X 2,000.....
my next move is to make a night shot of something like this so i can put stars where the white sky is and then it will really look like a planet floating in space
I believe a very low light panoramic is really one of the hardest things anyone can ever do in photography due to the nature of time itself, something you will constantly be battling. Clouds won't line up, boats in water will move, cars move people move, aeroplane paths shift and stars certainly move too. But if you pull off what I'm picturing I'll be very impressed, but without sounding rude, I just don't think you'll have much luck
i know what you mean... everything will move except the earth (which i am on) so what i am planning is to take the pano and completly disregard the sky and just make a nicely, night time looking, "planet" that i will then blend with a different shot of the stars to make it seem in space...
i guess at that point is would most definitly be a photomanip but i think it would be worth it just to see what it would be like
What you can't do in photography I guess you can very often do in Photomanipulation...Been seeing some real winners recently but I've forgotten where I put my link...lol, honestly I'll be one of those old people that can NEVER find my reading glasses and keep wondering what that weight is around my neck...
after much thought, and the fact that i dont have my camera any more, long story, i have decided to postpone the photomanip for a while... i really want to focus on my skill as a photographer (when i get my camera back...), and not on technology and manipulations
