The independence Day in the United States, fourth of July is every year celebrated all over US with fireworks, parades and private partys.
In New York the traditional Fireworks is sponsored by the worlds largest store, Macy's and it is also said to be the largest Fireworks in the world.
You usually see the images of the fireworks from the river with the Empire State Building in the background but in Jook Leung's panorama you are at the top of the building which after the tragic 11 sept, again is the highest building in New York. For security reasons, Jook was not allowed to take his tripod with him. What you see is a panorama which is made from images shot by a handheld camera above his head. A very hard task also for an experienced VR photographer.

by Antonio Moya www.moya.org - www.panovista.net
Jean Cocteau is one of the most famous French artists from the last century. If he had lived today he would probably been called a multimedia artist. This brilliant artist was a poet, novelist, he wrote plays, articles, ballet, opera. He also made thousands of drawings, paintings, modelled clay, was a sculptor, and designed costumes.
Most of us know him for the famous movie Beauty and the Beast / La Belle et la Bête which he made in 1946
By many considered one of the best 10 movies ever made.
Cocteau was born in 1889 and died in 1963.
He decorated many Chapelles in France and the
Chapel Notre-Dame-de-Jérusalem also called Chapelle Cocteau was the last. He never got it finished and it was his friend and spiritual son, Edouard Dermi who finished his work. The floor is by the ceramist Roger Pelissier. It is located in the South of France at the village of Fréjus
Antonio Moya also made the fullscreen in week 24/2002
