Wee Planets. 360° panoramas warped to look like small planets. The perfect vacation destinations for the Little Prince.

i'd seen this done before, but these totally erased my first impression--they are wonderfully done, fun, and beautifully composed.

Nice, and with complete instructions (and software links) to create your own.

Like small planets - that have been chopped in half by wee nuclear wars!!!

These are fun to look at, very appealing eye-candy. Thanks for the post.

The weird perspective destroys the planet-ness for me but still a fun effect.

These are brilliant, thanks. I'm off to try this myself tomorrow. Anyone got any other links to reinvigorate my point-and-shoot photography?

I am baffled.

Someone's been getting the photojojo newsletter

Oops - looked like they did it a different (read: 'more sophisticated') way - but the photojojo technique is worth a go :)

Pretty cool; I'm particularly fond of those without too many buildings.

Wow, terrific, beautiful. I really would like to see one of Central Park, around the Pond-ish.

Reminds me of the cover to Hergest Ridge.

And once you make some, there is, of course, a Flickr group.
