A large if not somewhat 'fish-eye lens' distortion style virtual tour version of my latest panorama..... it gives a bit more sense of scale, though as a print it would be even bigger (e.g. 28" inches x 9" at 300dpi... it could be made a bit bigger still 3ft by 1ft at 240 dpi!)

Have a look in full screen mode and just use the mouse to 'fly around and up and down'... might want to zoom out a bit too, makes for a less giddy trip!
