Hi all,

I just saw a nice advert for Eurostar, showing the ceiling of the Stadhuis in Bruges, in
cylindrical format. The view goes from the fireplace at one end, up over the vaulted ceiling
and then down to the doorway at the other end of the room - a very good use of panoramic
imagery in a mainstream paper (Guardian Weekend).

Anyone know who shot it?

Recently Johnson & Johnson's Sundown sunblocker did something similar to
Eurostar and used a couple panoramic images to illustrate a campain with
the theme "life spins around the sun". Two beautiful images, one at the
beach and the other at the park, remapped to that crazy projection that
makes that "tiny globes", but with the sky in the center instead:

However after a closer look it became clear that they were fake
panoramas. The shadows are impossibly placed. The beach scene is also
impossible, for it would take a small island to create a horizon that is
a 360º beach.

They are beautiful images though and I invite everyone to take a look!
Any ideas on how it was made? :-)

All the best,

Fabio.
• It is simple to make this take the equirect image of a pano resize it ( not proportional) so you get a square apply Polar Coordinates under transform in PS

take the equirect image of a pano

resize it ( not proportional) so you get a square

apply Polar Coordinates under transform in PS

you can also reverse the picture of Johnsons to get the equicrect
again which will give you more clues

Here a 100 x 500 m island, remapped as ring-earth.
The left is natural, on the right I stretched the sea for more impact.
It is 12, the sun is at zenith, people are sitting on their shadow.
Made from slides in year 2001.
