5 Incredible Panoramic Photos

October 5, 2010

Panoramic photography, with its sweeping and all-encompassing vistas, is a designer's delight. That's because panoramic shots are a treat to look at and nearly always capture the attention and imaginations of any target audience. Panoramic photography isn't limited to landscapes, either; in many cases it can be used to gain a new perspective on everyday locations, objects – and even people, as some of the following five incredible panoramic photos suggest. See if you can find a way to work panoramic photography into your next postcard, brochure or vinyl banner design! 1. Galleria Vittorio Emanuele Located in the heart of Milan, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele is a group of fresco-decorated buildings that house shops, restaurants and other businesses, all under an enormous double-vaulted glass roof. The flooring and building décor alone are enough to inspire great graphic design, but they look even better when you have a panoramic view. 2. Washington National Cathedral The Washington National Cathedral is one of the world's tallest and a prime example of neogothic design. This panoramic view of its interior lends a well-rounded view of its architecture and beautiful stained glass windows. 3. University of Kansas football field Congregating football fans are always an amazing site, especially at the stadiums of powerhouses such as the Jayhawks. 4. Halong Bay Sometimes it takes a panoramic view to accurately appreciate geologic formations, such as the jutting rocks of Halong Bay in Vietnam. No wonder its name literally translates to “Descending Dragon Bay.” 5. Human Face Panoramic photography isn't just for landscapes, evident in this panorama of a man's face. Creepy - I think it looks like something Buffalo Bill from “Silence of the Lambs” would have “hanging around.”
