It's life, Seamus, but not as we know it....
A miniplanet based on this HDR Panorama of the town.
The stars in the background came from a shot I took of the Milky Way last year. The 'planet' effect was achieved by using Photoshop's 'Polar Coordinates' filter on the panorama shot mentioned above. If you'd like to have some fun trying this yourself, there's a great tutorial here.
