This is my first try at making a polar panorama. I took one of my older panorama’s, “Path Less Traveled” and tried out the effect. The result was phenomenal! But having no sky present, I couldn’t do a ‘true’ polar panorama as the other had skies in them. So, messing around a bit more, I created a space background along with some nebulae and threw in the “planet”. So this is the end result(with a lot of manipulations in Photoshop of course!).
I was heavily inspired by the movie “The Fountain”. That’s the main reason I turned just a panorama experiment into a real masterpiece. I really loved the movie. :)
