This 3D panorama of Manhattan by Sergey Semonov was featured earlier this year in Atlantic Cities but was worth a repost just in case anyone missed it! It won first place at the Epson International Photographic Pano Awards. Sergey works on a team called AirPano, which shoots from helicopters and stitches images together to create incredible 3D panoramas like this one.
The panorama is a huge image which allows much zoom-in exploration. Some building heights are exaggerated or morphed by the process but many are still recognizable. See below: Columbia University with its distinct green roofs, and St. John’s the Divine Cathedral just beneath it looking a little extra tall.
