A series of images taken at a local park, then combined in photostitch and polor coordinated into "The world" Big tree added from a different shot at the park.

Sky combined from joining the same shot from the park 3 times into a panoramic and then polor co ordinated

Plasters put onto a baseball and shot seperately and then overlayed.

Texture on the plasters and "planet" is of some tree bark to give the "earth" a damaged look.

Lot's of overlay, soft light blends, lens blur, USM, curves, LOADS of clone tool to clean up blends with the shots.

I'm really happy with the result as a piece of Digital Art, as my PS skills aren't great.

Was a fun learning experience and I think it meets the challenge well.

We'll see.........
