What Does a Crowd of 1.9 Million Look Like?

I hope you can see, load, whatever -- this panoramic shot of the inauguration. It is the best shot of the event I've come across.

Look at it full screen, and if you've got the time, let it do it's slow crawl pan. It's fun to take the time to look at all the details. And then after that, fun to do the click/drag thing to look all the way up to the top of the sky, and then to the floor beneath the camera. You can see the names written on pieces of tape where the photographer is supposed to stand beneath their feet. So many details in the crowd. I was surprised to see Yo Yo Ma so far up above the main stage. And you can tell the trumpets are heralding at that moment. There are so many things to see and they are all so clear. Hope this link works for you. For the Inaugural panoramic, click HERE.

Wow. That is freaking amazing. When you click and drag, it feels like you're swooping over the crowd!

I'm getting vertigo looking at it.
