    I used PS Elements Version 10, but I think any version can do it? It has a rectangular to polar "filter". The 1st trick is to first make the rectangular image a square, by changing the horizontal size to a value equal to the vertical size. The 2nd trick is to add borders top and bottom...in this image I added a white border at the top and a black border at the bottom...the top border was rather big, as I used the clone tool to drag parts of the skyline up into the white border [this can be done before or after the polar conversion]. The 3rd trick is to rotate the square image 180-degrees [turn it up-side-down]. Then just convert from rectangular to polar coordinates [it's in the Filter > Distort menu]. At one point, I had a nice set of instructions re how to do this, but I lost them. :-( I should recreate them and put them on my website... I have tried to add cross-links to both images, but not sure I can just copy and paste HTML code?

    Wow... this version looks absolutely amazing. What program did you use to make the polar version?
