Mini Planet - Campus Square by electricjonny Mini Planet - Campus Square by electricjonny
This is in Ann Arbor Michigan, on the University of Michigan campus.

I don't quite like how the center turned out, because of the distortion in the shadows, but it's not too bad. I also used the Liquify filter in Photoshop to make all the edges of the red bricks strait, and there's some jaggedness there. They bowed in a lot in the original.

For anyone wanting to know how to do this, you can see a tutorial here.


Feel free to download this to see a bigger version (4648x4016 pixels, 8 MB).

You can see more of these here :)

I'll be posting a couple more of these, so let me know how this looks :)

Very cool, I looked at the others but I think this one looks the nicest, it has a much brighter, fresher look, and the description on the first version was interesting too :O

This is so cool!! :excited: This one, and the Ferris State one are my favorites!

They're so colorful! I think a lot of it has to do with the sky and the focal points you chose (The UofM one had a pretty cool design in the grass/sidewalks too, and I looooove the Compass in the Ferris State one.) But as far as this image is concerned, I like the way you pulled the shadows into the center of the square. =D The changing leaves on this one are a nice touch.

You should print off these images and sell them to businesses in the respective areas. I'm sure they'd love them! Hell, if I owned a store pictured in that "Ann Arbor" one, I'd definitely buy one of these prints and hang it on the wall. It's just so cool!

Kudos all around. :clap:

Haha thanks for the replies :D

I actually printed the Ferris one off and put it in a cafeteria on campus. Seems people liked it, since I got a few comments about it. I think it's still there too :slow:

So I might turn these into prints on dA, thanks for the suggestion :)
