Panoramic Photo from Birkat HaChama at the Kotel

This is totally cool -- same panoramic photo technology as the ultra wide zoom from Obama's inauguration at the Capitol.

Zoom in on people for super high resolution so you recognize your friends :-)

Nice... I wish I could do that.

The best I got were these: http://mikeage.net/content/gallery/occasions/BirkasHachama/ [and not from the Kotel]

There is a program available for (free) download called Autostitch that allows you take a number of pictures and "stitch" them togehter into a panoramic shot.

But where is Waldo?

Zooming in really close and scrolling left/right gives you the feeling of endless religious Jews at the Kotel doing a Mitzvah.
I agree - it's totally cool.

There is something wrong with this photo. Men and women seem mixed. I bet multiple photos have been spliced together.

Lol, I found myself.

Chutznik, multipile pics were spliced together but there was a mixure closer to the womens section. That's just what happens whn so many get crammed into the Kotel plaza

I can't believe that many people could stand together without trampling anyone to death. Amazing photo.
