Default Cool photos...

Not sure if there already is a thread like this (apologies if so!!) but I though a general "damn that's cool" photo-thread might be interesting...

My starter...

Just had this link sent to me, you will have to copy and paste the web address into IE or whatever you use as it does not seem to work on this page, worth the effort even if you are not religious.

On an HD monitor this is fabulous. You can look around, up and down and zoom in and out.

In one of the images you can see where the image was spliced, a car parked in the first image was moved, so you see only half of it spliced to a half of a new car.
On an 28" HD monitor it is spectacular, not so much on my wifes small screen.

Stunning 360 deg. photography
These 4 pictures are absolutely gorgeous....you have to close each one out and start over on the next.
Four attachments of four different locations.
This is unbelievable photography especially viewed with this sophisticated 360 degree technology.
Drag your mouse all the way up and all the way down and side to side .
Use your mouse to move around.

Awesome.

One funny optical note - the panoramas are shot on rectilinear super-wide lenses.

What does this mean practically? It means that when you view the panoramas, the landscape looks distorted. The reason for this is that the images are perspective mapped onto a flat plane with a short focal length. Since the human eye is around 40-50mm in equivalent focal length, at normal viewing distances, the objects near the edge of the screen look much larger than objects at the center. This means that the perspective distortion disappears when the human eye is very close to the screen - about 1-2 inches away. You'll look funny doing it, but try it out and you'll understand.
