Weekly Photo Challenge: Distorted


An image made to look distorted by using polar co-ordinates

I’ve been ill all week. Some sort of stomach bug which makes me feel like my stomach is turning circles so I think this image is quite appropriate at the moment. All week I haven’t felt like eating and when I do it’s only small amounts, after which I feel as though I’ve eaten a 7 course meal. So far I’ve lost 7lb (about 3kg) which is a lot in a week. Pounding headache as well.

Anyway to this photograph….to get the distortion I used the Polar Co-ordinates effect, sometimes called the Little Planet effect. The main difference is I reversed the effect to give me more of a tunnel look. If you fancy having a go at this effect yourself there are plenty of tutorials available for the Gimp and Photochop.

As usual, if Zemanta picks you up, I’ll provide a PingBack through the Related Articles

  8. Mike, this is such a fabulous wrap. Strangely enough, for me anyway, the people in the shot help to make it less of a distortion and more of a fantastic possibility that this landscape does indeed exist!

    Hope you are feeling better!
