Vertical composite panoramas of New York church interiors by Richard Silver.

Capturing such architectural glory, sez he, involves ‘finding the perfect location in the center aisle then shooting vertically from the pew to the back of the church gives the perspective that only architecture of this style can portray.’

Behold IN2White – the highest resolution zoomable panorama ever made, apparently.

Three hundred and sixty five gigapixels, if you don’t mind.

Timewaster bonus: can you find the climbers?

Michigan based photographer Vincent Brady uses a four-camera rig and a plethora of edit software to create what he describes as ‘planetary panoramas’: to wit, tiny planets appropriately set against the starry night sky. Sez he:

While experimenting with different photography tricks and techniques back in 2012, I was shooting 360 degree panoramas in the daytime and long exposures of the stars streaking in the sky at night. It suddenly became clear that the potential to combine the two techniques could be a trip! Since the Earth is rotating at a steady 1,040 mph I created a custom rig of 4 cameras with fisheye lenses to capture the entire night-sky in motion. Thus the images show the stars rotating around the north star as well as the effect of the southern pole as well and a 360 degree panorama of the scene on Earth. Each camera is doing nonstop long exposures, typically about 1 minute consecutively for the life of the camera battery. Usually about 3 hours. I then made a script to stitch all the thousands of these panoramas into this time-lapse.

The windowless passenger cabin of the flight-time-halving Mach 1.8 (1200mph) Spike Aerospace S-512 supersonic business jet has ultra thin LCD displays embedded in the walls – relaying panoramic video from cameras on the plane’s exterior or from an onboard database.

We would select an underwater display, ensuring a restful flight from which we would disembark fully insane.

lond1lond2lond3Taken from the BT Tower (whose exact address was a state secret until 1993), this 320 gigapixel panoramic gives a fantastic view across London at an unparalleled resolution.

Pity about the weather.
