Photo Hunters: Silver



Silver Weed

Winter Weed

I have been making amazing circles for a couple of months on Photoshop and The GIMP. Then suddenly I was unable to make them successfully: I have been getting gaps and seams and ovals!

I have looked all week for something with the Silver theme and missed one great shot of ice fog. Now the weather is so cold ( the high today was -5°) that I simply cannot go out for photos.

Then a gift fell from Flickr: a link to dumper.net amazing circles. Select your flickr photo and this web app creates your amazing circle for you (and does it better than I have been lately!).

This is the original photo that the amazing circle was created from:

Barton Mountain

Here is another amazing circle with the original photo underneath:

Winter Woods

Happy blogging!

  25. This is so cool! I have a flower shot I must try this on! I really like the second one! That is so cool!

    As for my photo, yes I took it. I made the boy lean back in his chair and look at me and snapped the shot! It is one arced piece with balls on each end. He tells me it did not and does not hurt. I was not thrilled to say the least when he came home with it! The ears are bad enough!
