Cologne Panorama - 360 degrees by BenHeine Cologne Panorama - 360 degrees by BenHeine

____________________________________________________

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.
