Another ‘amazing circle’

Here’s yet another example of the technique to turn an image inside out, described in my post of 25 November.

The starting image was the watch shown in my ’1 cent ring flash’ post (8 Dec 09).  Can you figure out what the time was, before you look back at that original image?

What was the technique used to create this in photoshop – I am familiar with the filter options for Distort – Polar coordinates but it doesn’t make the image appear to be inside out. I like this!

I’m glad you like it, not everyone does.

There is a good description of how to do it at .

There are a few more steps involved than you might think. I made a Photoshop action to speed it up. Then I can try different starting points, e.g. crops. By all means ask again if you have other questions.
