The previous two 'little planets' I put up were constructed from 360° panoramas, but this one used the following single shot:

When I was researching how to make these, one of the suggestions I came across (though can't find the url now) was that single photographs of islands can make good 'little planets'. So, I decided to look back through my Nassau shots to see if I'd shot any. I had, but I wasn't happy with how they turned out. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I definitely wanted to try using a single image so thought I'd try this one.

With a 360° panorama, the edges meet up as you wrap the image, but with a single shot they don't, so the major work that went into constructing this one was making sure that the joint wasn't too obvious.
