Thankyou Quocson. This type of image is known as Little Planets, it is done by changing the polarity of a spherical panorama. These are the first ones I have done, I only recently started making spherical panoramas. I stitched the photos in Hugin, then used Polar Coordinates in Photoshop to change Rectangular to Polar.

What a special captures this way, I like it.

I enjoyed the Hugin site. Thanks for the reference

You can view the Spherical Panorama here. The method using Photoshop to make the little planet seems to stretch the sky and things near the horizon. When I tried the PTGui demo, it had an option for little planet for the projection type, which does not distort so much near the edges. I don't see that option in Hugin, but the gallery has images like that, so it may be possible but I don't know how yet.

I knew there would be a way. You must choose Stereographic for the projection, then drag the centre to the nadir and adjust the FOV to suit. See this image, the sky and trees are not distorted like in the others.

Haha, thank you. But is wasn't my intention to do something like that. It is just nice to see.

OK, but it may be useful to somebody. I am just glad to have learnt something new today :)

Yes, you are quiet right ;) I wish you success!
