    There's an Audubon sanctuary near me that's also a working farm. Took a some shots of their chickens, and was making eggs the next morning...that got me to thinking...and these:

    Brilliant neuro. Would like to see a CAT scan that looks that good.

    Here's my latest. I've seen a few 'tiny planet' images recently, including a nice one from Sean. A bit of Googling showed that it only took a few steps to create one, the challenge is finding the right source image. I wanted to try something a little different, turned out to be a fair bit of work.

    I started with two panorama shots of Boston, from the other side of the Charles River (by the MIT campus). They were taken from the exact same spot, one at night and one during the following day. Each was a 10-shot pano at 70mm in portriat orientation (1D X, 24-70L II), although I cropped them to ~7 shots worth for this, so I could pick ends where the buildings lined up nicely. There were a few boats floating in the foreground, and I cloned those out (including the masts among the buildings). Then I converted both night and day panos into tiny planets, cleaned up the seams, pasted the day planet over the night planet, and applied a gradient layer mask.

    Really nice, Joel! Is that your own texture that you used for the background? I like it a lot! Your bird shots are still the best!!

    It was a great choice for this shot! I have OnOne's Suite 8 although I haven't used their textures much but I probably have it in there.
