Cologne, View from former Messeturm
Zoom-in on Cologne: This gigapixel image was created in August 2012 for a presentation on photokina, international tradefair for photography. It was shot from the former "Messeturm" (tradefair tower). The shot was taken early in the morning (starting at 6:40 am) to the South and West. The slightly bigger image was reduced to 15 gigapixels for pragmatic reasons.
