What a fun perspective! You have done a great job of using the photographic medium to show us something we don't normally see. Well done!

142 Frames stitched using PTGui, Producing a 140MP Image. This covers

about 150 Deg. Horizontally and 180 Deg. Vertically using Mercator

Projection. Hand-held Canon 350D was used with 15mm f2.8 Fisheye.

Unfortunately there was some restoration going on which prevented me

from shooting more impressive spaces , and the second issue was the

tourists staring at me and not moving from my view finder all !!!, it

took me 20 mins to capture these! well I know this is not a prefect

photo, but I hope you like the idea. Regards.

Fantastic Work! The simple colour palette and well balanced lighting really helps bring out the detail. Great composition too, really original and perfect for this subject.

This is also a very good photo.

It is surely worth your efforts.

I especially liked the "metal look" you preferred, which is in direct contrast to the "light" or "new age-like" approach preferred by most for this place.

I love your treatment and this is your signature look. Very easily identifiable.


Amazing photos. I'm exploring the whole picture for details as you would do in real life if I was there in physically.


Thank you for sharing.

I think your standards are higher than most! I was there almost exactly a year ago and the same scaffolding was in the way although it looks like there is less now. By 2019, it should be gone. Good work. GJ
