This Is The World’s Highest Resolution Picture Ever Taken

This Is The World's Highest Resolution Picture Ever Taken
Zoomable version here


In an attempt to break new ground and always push the boundaries, Halta Definizione has created the world's highest ever resolution in a picture. Or actually, the image consists of 1,677 different shots and is then stitched together to make a truly amazing, if not wondrous picture where depth gets a new meaning.

So what is this picture portraying? Well, it wouldn't be right if it wasn't Leonardo da Vinci's "The Last Supper". The depth of the image is just mind boggling. You can zoom down to the smallest grain of paint and still not lose the clarity or the crispness of the image itself. It's really amazing to zoom and pan around in search of those infamous details that we all know of since the movie "The Da Vinci Code" by Dan Brown.

The original 15 by 30 foot painting was photographed over a period of 9 hours and later meticulously stitched together where the tapestry of images finally became a fully viewable and zoom-able image. This image has never before been seen in it's full scale on the Internet.
