Thats cool. are you going to share the skill or is it a secret?
Oh yeah, sorry. This is my first attempt, so I don't really know all the fine tuning. I think this works best with very level city or landscape shots.
Open your image in photoshop.
Scale your image to a square. (Image>image sixe>uncheck "scale styles"and"constrain proportions"> make height and width pixel #s match)
Rotate image 180 degrees
Apply filter>polar coordinates.
Clean up stitch lines by cloning, healing brush, etc...(your choice)
It's perty cool and fun to play around with....
Cool...gotta dig this one.
can u post the original?
dude that is so cool. I've seen this sort of thing before, but never knew how to do it, so thanks for sharing.
really cool...........this is my try at it.

I know there's a dude up in Seattle who does cityscapes like this (though not using this exact technique -- I don't know what he does, but his stuff like you're looking at a tiny little planet), and he's been quite successful. I just dug around and found the page of the guy I was thinking of:
I just tried doing it to a shot I had of the U.S. Capitol building. It worked so-so:
Hey stop taking pictures of my car! lol
That's some very interesting work, and an intruiging technique! What fun!
