That is AWESOME. Great photo. I'm guessing that the seam is in the middle going horizontally? Almost impossible to see, especially if I'm wrong! :) Love the overall green tint and the white contrast.

Touchdown score!

Great one! Looks like you want to marry someone though. Is anyone here going to say yes ?

Awesom photo mem! I wish I could do thing like this, can you learn me?

It's awesome, it'd be better if you watermark it in the corner or something instead of the whole photo?

Nice! did the new lense you were talking about get rid of the seam that was in the others you tried or did you find another trick?

The white sliver that was happening in the other photos was due to my own stupidity. I was cutting a small portion of the panorama photo off, making it slightly less than 360 degrees. And if anyone knows math you'd know that you need 360 degrees to complete a circle.

So, the answer to a few of those questions is that this is a panorama photograph-- photos taken in a complete circle and then stitched together using a program called ptGUI-- with its polar coordinates wrapped around (using Photoshop).

I hadn't noticed how ring-like it looks... Neat...

really neat pic, reminded me instantly of a flash game I played way back: worlddefense

That's awesome Mem, is that post-processing magic or camera magic? Either way it looks awesome!

Mem October 18 2007 5:22 PM EDT

The only thing I used Photoshop for was to flip the photo 180 degrees and then alter the polar coordinates. Everything else is as it was taken-- a night exterior at a 10 second exposure.
