Arc de Triumphe, Paris, France at evening.

Please zoom in and see the amazingly details
Arc de Triumph Gigapixelized

How it was made:
The image was constructed with about 209 zoomed-in photographs with overlapping portions . To prevent differences in shade, colour and focusing, the shutter speed, aperture, focus, ISO and White balance were kept fixed in manual mode. A gigapan sticher was used to combine the photos. Their site shows photos in flash, so easily zoomable.

Arc de Triumph is one of the defining monuments of Paris, France. It honours the soldiers who fought for France, including 660 names of all the generals and wars faught. The floor of the moument contains the tomb of the unknown soldier from World War I.

On a funny note, coming from a North American winter, I waited for the evening blue colours from 6:15 pm . Little did I know that I would have to wait till 9 pm, till both the sky is slightly dark and the lights on the monument start. Getting suspicious of my constant staring at Arc de Triumph, the cops dropped by to ask about my intentions (and for searching my bags).
