Cologne Panorama - 360 degrees by BenHeine Cologne Panorama - 360 degrees by BenHeine
© Ben Heine || Facebook || Twitter ||

3 days of intense work to make this huge panorama of Cologne, Germany's fourth-largest city. This is a 360 degrees view, I tried to get as many details as possible, sometimes repainting different parts of the cityscape. The original composition is really big because I assembled more than 30 photos. I took all of them when I was in Germany 2 weeks ago... (FYI, I didn't use any autopano or fisheye!). You can see 2 vertical details here below.

Thanks a lot for your kind comments.

The above image has been created with pictures taken by the Samsung NX10, which has been provided to me by Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.

For more information about my artwork:

Two random details (the original version of the above image is 20.000 pixels wide...):

Some of my other pictures (panoramas):

More facts: The city's famous Cologne Cathedral (Kölner Dom) is the seat of the Catholic Archbishop of Cologne. The University of Cologne (Universität zu Köln) is one of Europe's oldest universities.

Cologne is a major cultural center of the Rhineland and has a vibrant arts scene. Cologne is home to more than 30 museums and hundreds of galleries. Exhibitions range from local ancient Roman archeological sites to contemporary graphics and sculpture. The Cologne Trade Fair hosts a number of trade shows such as Art Cologne, imm Cologne International Furniture Fair and the Photokina. Cologne is also well-known for its celebration of Cologne Carnival, the annual reggae summerjam, and Cologne Gay Pride.

Within Germany, Cologne is also known as an important media center. Several radio and television stations, including Westdeutscher Rundfunk (WDR), RTL and VOX, have their headquarters in the city.
