Composite Image - Planet Folly


(Brian Innes) #1

I’ve spent a bit of time reworking one of my “Little Planet” panoramas of a local Folly. The sky was somewhat boring, so I replaced it with a copyright free image of the sky at night! And Who is that in the background? :wink:

Looks quite good even although it is my first real attempt at composite images in Gimp.

Out of interest, I’ve submitted this image to my photography clubs Christmas Knockout Competition :wink: I wonder how it will get on?

Awesome!

What is causing the white ring?

@paperdigits, just a clever mask which fades out the blue sky in the original tiny planet panorama into the star field in the background layer. A combination of a mask created using a greyscale version of the source panoramic image, then created a mask using threshold. Then added a circular gradient into the mask.
