Tiny planet in autumn
Tiny planet in autumn by Helen in Wales
Tiny planet in autumn, a photo by Helen in Wales on Flickr.

49/52 for the group T189 alphabet challenge

The set theme was: Y is for Your favourite technique

These little planets made out of landscapes are great fun. I'll say that this is a repeat of U is for Unreal because this definitely is! :) As this was a purely photo-manipulation challenge, I hope it's OK that the original photo was taken a few weeks ago. The weather hasn't really been conducive to taking landscapes recently.

I love that! It reminds me of those blown-glass paperweights that look like tiny planets. I always enjoy wondering what life would be like there.

Thanks. I really like doing them. Here is a seaside planet I did last year.

Wow! I love it. I love all of them on that page, in fact.

It does look very cool! Was it just from one photo?

Yes it was. Here is a thread on Flickr which explains how to do them and includes the originals of two photos used to make planets.

This is so very cool! Can you share how you did it?

I love doing them! Here is a thread on Flickr which explains how to create planets and includes the originals of two photos used to make planets, so you can see what they started out as.

Cool, thank you!

Such a neat way to make a little world :-)
