Such whole new ballgames down come around all that often and when it does its exciting. Framing little rectangular moments of time as a normal photograph is is great but its not necessarily what the world is all about. This superpanoramic photo stitch is a document of a whole biome. A whole way of life. I hate to say it but "its like being there". It captures such in a way a movie or video can not and as a framed photo can not. In away combines both. I think we're going to be seeing more of them and on a regular basis. And I'm going to be doing some. I'll be doing my street soon. Scrolling along our monitor is one thing but blown up large as an installation as a large mural down a hall would be another. I've always love Panoramics of all sorts. But my favorite format is 1 over 2. Which I like as its both a formal rectangle AND a panoramic. The way I see it its both at least. Mark William Rabiner Look! It's SuperPan!
