April 23 ~ earth-like
Of course, this isn't literally earth-like, but the circular center and dominant colors reference a global world. More than that, though, I browsed the Camera Creative book for inspiration and noted a section that describes turning panoramas into "small worlds." The effect is cool and ideally, this method calls for straight typical panoramas with straight horizons, but, I didn't feel like creating a perfect typical panorama to start from, and, ideals needn't be adhered to. This image was made by reusing the same abstract flash image (from the series posted February 10th) four times in a row, then stretched into a square and finally distorted via the polar coordinates filter.
The change isn't as dramatic as the alteration of a normal skyline, since it's shifting from one abstract image to an altered version of that abstract image, but, I'm an abstract fan.
Gear: Nikon D90, Nikkor AFD 60mm f/2.8 micro, SB-600, photoshop
