After discovering a fairly old Amazing Circles contest by accident on Flickr, I thought it might be fun to play around with the technique. Making circles is addictive, by the way. You can take any old picture and turn it into a spiffy sphere in a matter of minutes. Unfortunately, a circle, no matter how remarkable, looks terribly boring all by its lonesome. So, I thought I might experiment with some botanical garden photos by incorporating the orbs. And I had a blast.
