Hi all, here are some virtual realty photos of the Taj Mahal and Fatehpur Sikri that I shot on my trip to Agra. Thereís a control bar along the bottom of the image that fades away when you leave it, mouse over it and you can open the image up full screen, switch to HQ for high quality and do a few other things. With your mouse you can turn the photo to see in any direction and use the wheel to zoom.

The Taj Mahal.
This opens at the gate on the Forecourt and the first hotspot (Red dot, Link to next photo) is through the gate.

Fatehpur Sikri.
This one opens up at the water reservoir along the front wall on the southern. When you get through to the courtyard you will see a hotspot in the sky, this one will take you to the backside, around the Elephant Tower.

Hope you enjoy them,
Cameleer
Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.

Iíve been setting up a sitemap where you can now view all of my panos from India that I have finished so far.
http://www.indiavrtours.com/site_map.html
Next week I will be back in India for 17 days and going to the Jaipur Elephant Festival to shoot more of these photos. Also I plan on spending more time around the Taj and a few other places where I did not have enough time at on my last trip. Any suggestions on good places around Delhi or Agra to take these types of photos would be much appreciated

For some good info on doing this type of photography check out this page:

Wowee!

Those pictures are fantastic, thank you so much for sharing them. It's great for a first-timer like me to be able to feel almost as if I'm really there. Of course it can never match the experience itself, but how wonderful (and comforting!) to be able to have a sense of what to expect.

Now how about some "public service" photos like the arrivals hall at Delhi International Airport and New Delhi station?!

Looking forward to the next batch.

I'm in New Delhi now and will be going to the Taj next.
Sorry but they don't let you take photos at airports or train staions.

Hey hey.

They are pretty amazing. Perhaps you can shoot some in unlikely shot situations; street shots, in laneways, etc.

Thanks

I look forward to seeing them.

The whole 360 panarama thing is really nice. It could also be fantastic in the most unlikely of places (other than sights or monuments) I love the way people are frozen in motion. It reminds me of a music video that I first saw a similar freeze video process in, with Rolling stones version of ... like a rolling stone.

If you can, do post your "street shots"

Thank you for sharing.

Iím back from my trip to India with many new photos.
Below is the Peerless Pool at Fatehpur Sikir. I first tried this shot without a pole but you couldnít see the water from the low angle, so I went back and used my pole, and I think it turned out rather nice. The hotspot will take you to inside of the Diwan-I-Khass, or ďPrivate Audience HallĒ where you will get an unusual pole shot from high up.

Here are 2 oxen pulling a cart in the Taj Mahal while workers are busy cleaning the Paradise Gardens and replacing stone along the walkway.

Behind the Taj Mahal is the Yamuna River and here workers are washing and drying sheets along its banks as buffalo are coming out of it.
