This is the view from the tallest man-made structure in the world, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Photographer Gerald Donovan set up a tripod at the top (2,722 feet) and took 48 panoramic images, each with an 80-megapixel resolution. The images were stitched together to create one seamless image, and presto: arguably one of the most amazing views ever, in a full 360 degrees.
You can rotate and zoom to explore Dubai in the shot. Unfortunately, you can't see people very easily. (Forget "the people look like ants from up here": some other buildings look like ants from this view.) And if that zooming gives you vertigo, just be thankful you weren't the photographer.
