I've been playing around with these mini planets by shooting them in the middle of a playground, and I think this one worked out pretty well. It was hard since there was so much detail pretty close to the camera, so I had to do a lot of touch up work in various places.
Anyway, I think this looks pretty decent. I spent a while trying to make the center look good, since in the original mini planet, you could see my tripod's shadow and other random things. So I went back to get an overhead shot of just the center, and I think this looks pretty decent.
Any thoughts or opinions?
