The Bund is a waterfront area in central Shanghai. The area centres on a section of Zhongshan Road (East-1 Zhongshan Road) within the former Shanghai International Settlement, which runs along the western bank of the Huangpu River, facing Pudong, in the eastern part of Huangpu District. The Bund usually refers to the buildings and wharves on this section of the road, as well as some adjacent areas. It is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Shanghai. Building heights are restricted in this area. Source: Wikipedia
On an exceptional clear sunny day, I managed to spot a building under construction in the area of Raachine that has a stunning overlooking view of the Lebanese coat. Far right is Chekka/Amchit all the way down to Beirut Central District including Byblos, Jounieh, Harissa, Christ Roi, Zook, Solidere, Beirut International Airport and so on.
This is a collection of seven GigaPans in total that I have taken during my trip to Istanbul, August 2011. Click on each image to dive into the ultra high resolution interactive GigaPan. All of the panoramas were shot with the Canon 550D and the GigPan Epic Pro robotic head.
Dubai Downtown Gigapan at dusk | 320 megapixels, August 1, 2011
Dubai Downtown GigaPan was shot on August 1, 2011 at around 19:35. It was stitched from 45 images taken with the Canon 550D (t2i) and the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens at 200mm. I also used the Manfrotto Tripod 055CXPRO3 Carbon Fiber + Manfrotto 468MGRC4 Magnesium Hydrostatic Ballhead. As for the pano head, I used the GigaPan Epic Pro robot.
The shoot took 5 minutes and the resulting GigaPan is equivalent of a 320 Megapixels image.
Regarding the aspect ration, I have decided to go for a 1:1 ratio for a change. So far i like it so much. What to you think?

A big thank you to Charbel for offering his place for the shooting.
