    It has been quite literally forever since I have posted on here, and for a while there I thought I lost my photo flame. But God save me a week ago my passion was once again sparked and I really knuckled down.

    1.
    I already posted a picture similar to this here but I wanted to try an improvement.

    I recently became interested in street photography at night so the last few nights I've been exploring my streets after dark

    Thanks guys =D

    #3 is called a Globe Panoramic
    basically what you do is you take a 360 degree panoramic shot and use the "Polar Coordinates" filter in photoshop
    it turns the entire shot in on itself, makes it look like a miniature planet =P

    wow lol never heard of that one before and it's something I definitely want to try once I've got a tripod :D

    btw where the hell did you get all your nifty ideas from? :p
    I remember you started the composite photos thing like a year ago and got a lot of people into creating their own and now this :)

    you don't need a tripod, if you have a good enough pano stitching program you can handhold them, assuming there's enough light. For one like this a tripod is essential, those were 30 second exposures

    and idk where the composite photos came about i just had the idea one day and it evolved from there
    the globe pano thing i looked up on google, i saw a picture of it and i wanted to find out how to do it

    there's a link to a site about how to do it on this site, just search Globe Panoramic and you'll find it
