‘Planet’ fiddling

Had a few minutes on Friday to take a quick visit to the gallery at Mann Library to check out the Planet Cornell exhibit. The exhibit features works by photo wizards Kent Loeffler (the photographer upstairs for the Department of Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology, see his work here and here) and Claire Smith, where they manipulate panoramic images into free floating spherical worlds. (View some of Kent’s planets here.)

The process is relatively easy. (Here are the directions.) But obviously, I need some practice:

The 360 panorama of Minns Garden:

‘Planet’ with sky to center.

‘Planet’ with sky to the edges.

Think I need to stitch in more sky to make it work, which I’m not sure I can do in PhotoShop. I also fiddled with an old panorama (though not 360) of Fred running through the snow:
