It’s free, but it’s only available for Windows. Microsoft Research’s ICE (Image Composite Editor) I have had 2 cameras that each came […]
This 3.8 gigapixel image of the Khumbu Glacier was captured and stitched by David Breashears in spring 2012, from a viewpoint near Mount Everest. You can pan and zoom around this remarkable image, seeing the massive tent city of Base Camp, and awesome features of the Khumbu Icefall and surrounding mountains. You can also spy […]
Sweet! It looks like HDR photography only in video form. Yosemite HD from Project Yosemite. I post the HD version here. Use full screen! The song used is “Outro” by M83, the last track on their album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.
