On the Wings of a Dove [PIC]

Looking UpPhoto:
Image: Brent Townshend

This beautiful photo was taken on the corner of Buci and Seine in St-Germain-des-Pres, Paris. The photographer Brent Townshend used multiple fisheye lenses and self-written software to stitch the panoramic series of shots together, composing the eye-catching final image.

He says that the emergent shape of a dove, formed by the outlines of the buildings, was planned at the time of photographing and is not the result of any ‘tweaking’ beyond the use of his software to convert an essentially spherical panorama into a flat image.

You can find more of Brent’s excellent spherical photos at his website or you can see see the actual geographical location of many of his shots referenced on google earth through his Panoramio profile.

We’ll even throw in a free album.
