  1. My first try with the polar coordinates distortion. This could give you nightmares.

    OHHHHH dear.. I know what image that is :>)))

    Very well done.
     
  3. You're on a roll, Gordon...sorry about the pun. Did you have fun? I wonder how this might look it you rotated the canvas a little. I think it would be nicer if we could see your wife from a slightly different angle.

  4. Thanks Gale and yes it is the image your thinking about.
     
  5. It was fun to do that and I have tried several other images as well. As to rotating the canvas some I have actually already done that and I like it better. Perhaps I will change this image out with the new one. Thanks for your comments.

    OK, I have changed it out.

    Good thing she didn't view that before posing at the edge......would have made her dizzy!
     
  7. Gordon...That is real interesting and I thought it was a bird. You did a good job on this. I haven't tried it but they do look like fun. Can you tell me which distortion you used for this?
     
  8. It's a great distortion, very effective.

    Told you it's a bit scary :biggrin:
     
  9. Wow Gordon, nice result of this technique. On the original picture she looked precariously close to "falling", but this one really gives me dizzy spells. Well done!
     
  10. Melisa, see this thread for the tutorial.

  11. Gordon, great use of the distortion. I really love the effect. It looks like taking a picture through a transparent sphere.
     
  12. Ken, Melissa, Phil, Frits and Dao;

    The effect even made me dizzy looking at it. I appreciate your comments and Dao, I was thinking your right, I was thinking of a large drop of water with this reflection in it. Good observation.

    Mellisa, I see that Phil has given you the link to the tutorial. It is really quite simple and I tried several different pictures today.

  14. Thanks Gale, I think it's better that way as well.
     
  15. Hi Gordon ! seems that you cought the fever too ?!?

    J-P.
     
  16. Actually J-P I haven't shown her this image. Chicken I guess.:rolleyes: 
     
  17. Now that is freaky
     
  18. :biggrin: I thought so:biggrin:
     
  19. Freaky, yeah, but in a good way. I just love the result you got there, Gordon! :biggrin: Now, don't be a chicken and show it your wife: I'm sure she'll appreciate your creativity! :rolleyes: 
     
  20. Discretion is the better part of valor and my wife is already afraid of heights. I think not.:wink:
