Continuing the theme of computationally-intense photography, I am a big fan of ultra-high-resolution mosaics. These images are stitched together from many individual shots and frequently push the limits of not only what my systems are capable of, but what normal phones and computers are even capable of viewing.
This, for example, is a 145MB jpeg image of a sandstone wall near Wisdom Tree trailhead in Red Rock Nevada. This image is over 100 megapixels, and you can zoom in on individual names carved in the stone with great detail.
Such images are quite difficult to host, so if you’re interested, you can see the rest of my ultra-high-resolution work in my EasyZoom Portfolio.
