I've never tried this filter ... yet. I bought a filter effects books so that I can see examples of what some of them do, but the polar co-ordinate one is not all that spectacular in that book. I really liked yours ...... the color combination was complementary. I tend to like contemporary pictures ... and yours certainly fit my tastes. I made a note in my book ..... and when I run across the right picture, I'm going to try it out! There is so much that can be done with Photoshop .... it never ceases to amaze me.
