195 Gigapixel Shanghai Photo!

in photography •  19 days ago

Well once again I stumbled upon something interesting today. I stumbled upon a photo that was captured using "quantum technology" with approximately 24.9 billion pixels on it!

Even if you zoooooooommmm very closely it can still give you a very clear image of the zoomed section of the pic. The photo which has an image size of 195 Gigapixel, print size of 199.7 meters with around 8700 photos on it can be viewed at: http://sh-meet.bigpixel.cn/

The photo was taken close to Shanghai's Oriental Pearl Tower:


I know what you're thinking, what's so special about a 24.9 billion pixels photo?! So why not for fun we count how many people where inside that circling road the moment this photo was taken?

Zooming in... The people inside are now somewhat visible but counting how many people were inside is still quite a trouble.


Zooming once more...


Starting off at this part:


You can even clearly see this group of friends:


And even clearly see people's face, I mean, just look at how that girl looks at that guy! <3 <3 Made me totally forget to count how many people were inside the circle lol
