Warsaw view from Marriott buildingWarsaw view from Marriott building


This is a very special panorama. From the technical point of view it should not exist because it breaks the main rule of the panoramic photography: move the camera around a nodal point of the lens. If the rotation is not exact we will have to deal with parallax, if parallax is too big the panorama may be unstitchable due to errors that would occur in such panorama. This spherical panorama has been shot from the edges of the Marriot hotel building in the center of Warsaw at the height of 140 meters above the ground level. So the parallax was huge, tens on meters but the panorama itself seems to be shot from just one point. The grass covers the building itself that the panorama was shot from. Additionally we managed to rise the resolution almost 4 times. Here are the parameters of the panorama:
