David Bergman made an amazing 1,474-megapixel panoramic photo during President Obama’s inaugural address. The detail in the image is impressive; Bergman describes how he found Yo-Yo Ma taking a picture with his iPhone.
The photo is a valuable record of the historic event as well as a technological/artistic tour de force. You can explore the photo itself online and read about how he did it on his blog.
CNN has another photosynth version of this based on photos sent in by diverse individuals at the event:
chip….someone had posted this to the ex-bbn list. it is an amazing photo. spent lot of time just zooming in and out to see how clear the picture was even way, way out onto the mall.
