Casa del Balboa Planet

This is my third planet. I took this outside of the Casa del Balboa in Balboa Park.


It took 204 pictures to make this. It is an HDR and stereographic projection.


I used Photomatix to batch process the HDRs.


Then I used PTgui to make the equirectangular panorama.


I used Flexify 2 plug-in for Photoshop to turn that equirectangular pano into a stereographic projection.


Then I used Photoshop to touch up stuff.


Easy as pie... and pie is actually really freakin' hard to make.


*Update* 7/30/2010 -


Wow! I'm just finding out that this photo along with two others have been featured on the art section of "What The Cool"


I think that it is really cool because all three of the photos on the site are my very first three true Stereographic Projection images ( aka Tiny Planets) :D


I kinda wish someone would have told me that they were going to use my images for their site though.....
