that is an amazing circle!* in photoshop: crop a square from your image, go to filter-distort-polar coordinates, select polar to rectangular. rotate image 180 degrees, go to filter-distort-polar coordinates again, this time choose rectangular to polar.* this is a fun trick, play with different photos and crops but beware- it can be addicting!

hi all just a bit of fun. just follow what julies typed your photo should come out the same. It works much better with an high res photo.

Alex :-)

Alex, this is a cool shot. The effect works really nicely with this subject - the distortion of the buildings is intriguing.

I tried this before when Julie mentioned it previously but I never managed to get an effect like that - obviously using the wrong photos. As LadyHawk said, the buildings are intriguing.
