Default Wild Card - more holiday circles....

I feel like a one-trick-pony, but I really liked the way this came out. (Will try to post something different before the challenge is over)

It almost looks like flower petals as they burst from the center of a flower.

Very cool! I can see why you like it so much, it's fascinating to me, too.

Beautiful! Studying this, I am wondering if the process can be reversed. I'm sure there would be loss of detail. With your permission, I would like to try with this image.

Interesting thought, Cal! I think it can be done. Please post yours if you are successful. I'm going to give it a try too....

Well, I've tried about a dozen techniques including polar to rectangular conversion and the results were all horrible. Without knowing more about the rectangular to polar conversion that takes place in PS and PSPP, I don't think it can be done.

Aha, got ya, Cal! Here's the step-by-step:
1. Distort/Polar Coordinates/Rectangular to Polar
2. Rotate 180
3. Distort/Polar Coordinates/Polar to Rectangular

I know it works because......


There is some residual distortion but pretty close to my original!

Seems like we are looking through hand blown glass. I like it.
