shooting gigapixel photos
Shooting a big photo of the British Museumís Great Court is easy. Shooting a big photo of the British Museumís Great Court that is so detailed you not only feel as though youíre standing there but can actually read the map halfway across the room is much harder.
Max Lyons though, has been taking just such detailed photos for more than seven years. He shot the first one gigapixel image in 2003 (a photograph of Bryce Point in Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah) and has since created photos that weigh in at around two gigapixels.

...and your point is?
technically anyone can do it with patience and time and correct equipment, is not easy for certain though
that said, the composition of the photo in the link is nice =)
