World's Largest Photo Ever Taken Indoor

The photo above is a phenomenal 360-degrees photo or it’s 2,947 pictures stitched together. It is to the photographer’s knowledge, the largest photo ever taken indoor with 280,000 x 140,000 pixels of awesomesauce.

In the screenshot above, in the painting on the ceiling, do you see that angel holding a book, right below the cross? The image below is zoomed in to give you a close-up:

That’s how freaking amazing this picture is.

The photo was taken by photographer and 360cities founder Jeffrey Martin, and shows the interior of the magnificent, 18th-century baroque library you can find inside the Strahov Monastery in Prague, Czech Republic. For more background, head on over to Wired.

The photo is 40 gigapixels (4000 megapixels); 280,000 x 140,000 pixels; made of 2947 images joined together; used a Canon 550D and 200mm lens; print size 23m x 11m; stitched file size 280GB; cut into 85,000 tiles for web delivery.
