  1. That’s bloody awesome !! Breathtaking is too weak ! ;)

    How do you do it? I am really curious about it, is it only one shot with a very special camera or many more stitched together to get this result ?

    Awesome work anyway ! You probably had a lot of fun doing this, should be pretty exiting.


  2. These are amazing photographs and I love how you were able to put it all together to get a 360-degree panoramic view. This is really a fantastic resource, I will show it to my students tomorrow! HUGE THANK YOU for making this available.

  3. Hi Nicolas,

    Those photos are so amazing. The 360 ° photo in full HD screen with interactivity was a great experience. At the beginning, I thought it was your own picture but thanks anyway for sharing it with us !
