xRezA repost, but they have cool new stuff!
Unfortunately not all links are working properly.
xRez is a collection of insanely high resolution panoramic images in various categories covering natural and urban subjects. If you’re into zooming down into a gigapixel image to look up a person’s nostrils, then this is for you.
xRez is a consortium of digital artists committed to exploring new creative opportunites made available by the advent of extremely high-resolution gigapixel digital photography. We believe this is clearly the next revolution in photography, allowing photographic experiences with a deeper level of fidelity and impact than previously seen. Further, by combining powerful 3d tools and techniques appropriated from the visual effects field, possibilites arise of new imagery and animation that are truly novel and unprecedented.

NudibranchsPhotographer David Doubilet introduces the glamour slugs of the sea. A clip from NGM. Click the picture.
“My job description is to make a picture of a place no one has ever seen before or, to make a picture that’s different of a place that everybody’s seen before.” -- David Doubilet
Some of his subjects are powerful and threatening, some are delicate, shy and elusive, but all are presented with an artistry and style that are easily and immediately recognizable. With a highly respected body of work that grows continuously, his images are always pushing the limits of underwater photography to new levels.

Cities at NightCities at night are strikingly beautiful from an orbital vantage.
As members of Expedition 6 to the International Space Station, we attempted to record these images with our digital still cameras and failed. The images were blurred due to the rather swift pace of orbital motion coupled with the required time exposures.
However, we managed to assemble a tracking system from spare parts on space station that amateur astronomers will recognize as a barn door tracker. Using this tracking system, we were able to manually cancel orbital motion and obtain for the first time, truly sharp images of cities at night from space.
Here is the whole transcript.

I photograph the world I see every day ...
at work, at home and wherever I may be.
This brings me great joy and helps me feel connected to the world we live in.

George Steinmetz Photography
Camel Caravan, Wadi Mitan, Oman
Best known for his exploration photography, George Steinmetz sets out to discover the few remaining secrets in our world today: remote deserts, obscure cultures, the mysteries of science and technology. A regular contributor to National Geographic and GEO Magazines, he has explored subjects ranging from the remotest stretches of Arabia’s Empty Quarter to the unknown tree people of Irian Jaya.
Most of the aerial photos you see on this website were taken from the seat of the lightest powered aircraft in the world, a motorized paraglider.

Branson DeCou Photoarchive
Rome: Forum Romanum, Temple of Saturn
The 1,475 photographs Branson DeCou took in Italy, on what we believe were several trips in the 1920s and early 1930s, captured on film the popular cultural sites of Rome, Venice, and Florence, and picturesque tourist destinations like the Ligurian and Amalfi rivieras and the Alpine hills and lakes of the North. These scenes would screen well for American audiences, providing access to masterworks of art, introducing "originals" to those who had never seen them, enhancing familiarity with high culture, influencing taste, and playing with the American imagination of bucolic Mediterranean lands, which one might experience if only one could travel. Shown during the American depression years, these images must have offered nostalgic views of a cultural paradise and simple lifestyles, perhaps even pulling at the heart strings of those in attendance with European backgrounds.
