What looks like strange tiny planets in these pictures are actually manipulated photographs by five talented artists. The special effects they have applied to panoramic photos have created these fantasy spherical worlds.
The image of the white church perched on what appears to be a tennis ball is my favorite; it and the second picture are by photographer Gadl. Images 3 and 4 are from the same panoramic original by Heiwa, but the first is wrapped outwards and the second inwards, resulting in completely different effects.
Image 5 shows the photographs before and after Seb Przd applied the spherical effects. He also was the man behind the park trees.
Photos 7 and 8 are by Japanese photographer Vitroids--the lighthouse image is awesome. The final two examples are by Boltron, who shows us both globular city and beachfront home views.
