About the Image(s)

The tree line was taken in our local park, and given the normal
basic treatment - Haze removal, Lighting, Colour and Contrast adjustment, Poster
Edges set to a minimum, and some vertical cropping. I then gave the image a
Polar Coordinate treat, and resized result to an exact circle. To fill the sky a touch,
and create a sense of direction, I cut and pasted 4 geese into position.

Me too, love the treatment and effect. And, the geese works in drawing the viewers eye in.   Posted: 12/10/2019 07:57:39

I looked at it again. On the left hand side there's a hard line, that could be blended in.   Posted: 12/10/2019 07:58:50

A splendid image Mike. The one problem I find with the polar co-ordinates filter is the one spotted by Jennifer - that hard line which often occurs at the join of the two edges. Just a little cloning would disguise this here.   Posted: 12/12/2019 14:15:29

Wow! Love this effect and the addition of the birds fits perfectly. Maybe try to make the yellow border more uniform?   Posted: 12/12/2019 14:47:40
