This is the first and only 360° gigapixel photo of the breathtaking view of Paris and the Eiffel Tower from the roof of Shangri-la Hotel. What makes this image rare and unique - aside from the 360° view - is it captures the 3 legs of the Eiffel Tower from a high vantage point. The 11,191 megapixel image (278,117 x 42,838 pixels) is composed of 1,638 individual photos taken in an 80-minute period on a cloudy April 5, 2013. Special thanks to Shangri-la Hotel Paris for the roof access, in particular to Alain Borgers, Carmela Borgers, Matthias Terrettaz, Hubert Savouré. | The Making of Paris 360°.
