This photo is actually made up of 12 photos (though HDR so actually 84) to capture the whole scene, stitched together and manipulated using photoshop to get the final photo. Taken in La Défense, the Paris business district, which is actually located outside of Paris...... I like the circles.

Holy cow that is crazy. I can't figure out if I'm looking at the floor or ceiling, or heck both :lol: You should post a few of the individuals so we can see where you started from (unless you don't want to ruin the mystique of the final product)

I agree with HikingMike, it would be interesting to see where this awesome picture came from, but you'll decide whether you want to keep it a secret or not :)

Thanks everyone for the great feedback. I will see what I can do about posting an original pic so you can see what it really looks like, but I will be traveling for a few days, so it will have to remain a mystery until the weekend:)

You can view a 360° photo from the inside here http://www.parisbyphoto.com/monuments-b ... index.html

This is what I used to create the first photo. There are 14 more you can view.

Thanks for looking! It was a lot of fun taking the photos, the editing was the part that was the hard work....

I'm sure of that! The most fun is always when you shoot, but editing..... well I actually like it but it's a lot of work to edit, and when it's a project that big, well, I imagine it was really hard work, I admire that you were able to do it, it's just amazing :)
