Venice panoramas

Piazza San Marco.

Gilles Vidal‘s 360º panoramas are justly celebrated but some of his photos benefit more from the location than others. The cathedral of St Cecilia is a great example of this, as is the city of Venice in this remarkable series of views. As well as showing a few less obvious locations, Vidal shows some of the more familiar sights in night views which are still fascinating due to the high quality of the pictures. The view of a misty Piazza San Marco (above) is wonderfully atmospheric.

    One thing I like about these sets is the variety of views and the way you can zoom in and out of the picture. It gives a great sense of space, far more so than a series of still shots.
