-- If you ever get yourself standing in the world's tallest skyscaper, the Burj Khalifa, the first thing you got to do is take a picture of your surroundings to record this momentous experience of your life. There are a lot of photographers who goes to Dubai to capture the 360 degree scenery from Burj Dubai. Some took virtual video tours of Dubai, still spherical photos and all other creative photography techniques. But the most interesting was the interactive 360-Degree panorama taken by the Dubai-based photographer Gerald Donovan. It was so wonderfully immersive that it has been awarded with so many awards, the most significant is the "Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Photography Award" and getting the grand prize is $120,000 this March 2013. But with a non-photographer, how can you capture such scenery in an interactive 360 photography?
