Mini Planet - Ypsilanti by electricjonny Mini Planet - Ypsilanti by electricjonny
This is a pretty iconic water tower in Ypsilanti Michigan, so I decided to try another mini planet of it. It was rather hard to get all the images because the sun kept going behind clouds and the shadows kept changing, and I sort of need to have consistency there. That, and my batteries were really low, and I didn't want to turn the camera off and loose my custom settings :bucktooth: So I shot this rather fast.

There's another spot I really want to do like this, but I'll have to wait for the crappy snow we got today to melt, or for it to snow a whole lot more.

I spent some time trying to make the tone and color look good, and also to align each image right.

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 (2222x2541 pixels, 5 MB) And I know there's some noise, but I didn't really feel like removing it.

You can see more of these here :)

this really looks amazing! i tried your tutorial, everything goes well but the final result gives me not a perfect planet/sky, there's like a line in the middle of my planet..and it's really disturbing :(

Yeah, that happens because the left and right sides of the panoramic (before you wrap it around into a circle) aren't always aligned properly. The best you can do is to make sure major parts are all level (buildings or the horizon, for example), meaning that they're at the same vertical level on both sides, and then you just have to spend some time cloning things around to try and make it seamless.

I do indeed! I have to say as much fun it is to make a mockery of, it's a landmark!

Hahaha, I've been given directions like that before! I used to get embarrassed, but now I'm just like: "okay, see you in ten."
