Tunnel Wave final

Tunnel Wave and How I made it

Here’s how I made the wave tunnel. I took an iPhone panorama at the beach. Making sure that the left and right side kinda line up.

First I brought the panorama into photoshop and duplicated the photo layer. Then I resized the image size to be a square.  The next step was to scale the photo to fit the square. The photo looks distorted. Next I flattened the layers and applied the Polar Coordinates effect. After I applied the effect I touched up the image by getting rid of the seam, cloning, adding clouds and sun.
