The iPad winning idea(s) and a challenge
Kerry Ellis offered to ask the astronauts to take a high-res pic inside the International Space Station. Ooooo!! Kerry, it isn’t the winning idea for the staircase but I have a wall 140″ tall x 140″ high that I’ll mount that shot on if you can arrange it, and I’ll send you a very fine iPad.

A few days ago I was sure we would settle on award-winning underwater photographer (and editor of Wetpixel) Eric Cheng’s idea for an underwater pano.
Eric, I love the idea so much I may be willing to commission it, and we may not be able to pull off the iPad-winning idea, so stay tuned.
The idea that swept us away:
California Photographer Patrick Smith suggested getting to the top of the North Tower of the Golden Gate Bridge and shooting South, placing the south tower on the staircase far wall, and the spans on the two side walls, with views of SF through the spans. Epic! Chilling! I’ll be sending your iPad right away.
How do you get permission? Some have:

What’s in it for the people who manage the Golden Gate Bridge? An epic public domain gigapixel image for historical purposes? Make it available for public viewing somewhere important?
Anyone know how to get permission?
