Moss Rose Swirl

I started with a photo of moss rose flowers. (3 different colors plus the green stems).
Using GIMP 2, I did two things with the photo:
1. Filter > Distorts > Whirl and Pinch (I did this several times)
2. Next... Filter > Map > Make Seamless

That looks awesome! Would make a great optical illusion book cover! But it would also look great anywhere!

THANKS for the comments. To be honest, I was disappointed in November and December. I entered about 22 photos in December. This one was my least favorite. I was really hoping one of my gull shots would be a finalist. But I guess the competition in animals is just too stiff with so many outstanding entries.
