Then i made the two ends of my picture ''meet'' in the middle... this is helpful because it is easier to melt them... we need that because our photo is going to make a circle that needs to be melted at the ends... :) i made this by simply going to
Filter > Other > Offset (500 Pixels to the right, check box: Wrap around).
step 3 of 10
now i used the clone stamp, healing brush and some pen to melt the middle. also removed the clouds from the upper cause we don't need that many clouds...
step 4 of 10
next thing we need to do is to crop the image a bit... simply select an restangle just above the city and a bit water and then Image>Crop.
step 5 of 10
Now, since we are going to be using polar coordinates.. we need to make the image square.. to give a round result (a rectangle would result in an oval) So...
Image > Image Size
Uncheck 'Constrain Proportions' and then copy the figure from the width (the top box) and paste it into the one below it, and hit ok. You'll have a square. An ugly square, but a square nethertheless.
Now rotate this square by 180 degrees:
Edit > Transform > Rotate 180
step 6 of 10
That was the hard work... now simply:
Filter > Distort > Polar Co-ordinates .... Rectangular to Polar.
step 7 of 10
now i made an oval selection and cropped the image...
step 8 of 10
Now add some shadow on the left and some highlight on the right.... this makes it more 3D and gives some depth...
step 9 of 10
now i changed the background colour of my bulb picture into blue by using Hue/Saturation, and using clone stamp and healing brush i removed the wires from the inside of the bulb...
step 10 of 10
Next and last... I placed the town over the bulb and using masking i revealed the light reflections of the bulb... Some more shadows and highlights and we are finished...
