How it was done:
The photography was done at the finish of the BCN Marathon Challenge, when quite a few people were walking around. A single row of 7 photos at different exposures (focal length 15mmm, portrait) has covered all relevant information
The resulting images have been edited (and most persons removed), then stitched together, edited again, and then turned into a cylindrical panorama.
This interactive panorama exists in two different versions: One is using, if available, the Adobe Flash Player, the other uses HTML5. The Flash version allows viewing in screen mode, the HTML5 version works on almost all devices that don't have Flash (Apple mobile devices).
