Planet Honda

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 17 January 2014 in Transportation and Portfolio.

I'd forgotten all about this unusual "little planet" that I'd made.

The secret?

Camera was tied on top of a long pole, shutter set to self timer, all other systems on auto, take two or three shots and then stitch them together in Photoshop and play around with polar co-ordinates, cloning, and healing. Eventually they all come together OK.

This is actually a Honda motorcyle parked up in the Bents Park in South Shields.
