The photograph, which can be seen here, has a total spherical resolution of 405 gigapixels and is surprising. Martin used a 600mm lens and a 50MP digital SLR camera to take pictures of almost everything in the old town. You can see the cathedral, the castle hill and even see street signs, building signs and pigeons. It is a fascinating view of a beautiful city.

Martin said it took more than six months to post-process the photo and it required thousands of photos and adjustments. He said the files are six times bigger than anything Photoshop can handle, so he found himself working with delicate solutions while sewing this amazing photo.
