I started to shoot pole panoramas extensively last year, because I like the higher view. To illustrate this, I've chosen to redo a "ground level" panorama I made last year.
Clicking into the new panorama brings you to the old one. It has been shot 1.4m above ground. Compared to the new one with 3.25m above ground, this does not seem to be much of a difference. However the higher perspective is much more interesting.
