What’s Your Panorama?

Less than two weeks ago we released the Photosynth app, which lets you capture amazing panoramas of your favorite places. We are floored by the response – TWO MILLION DOWNLOADS in just 11 days. A big, heartfelt THANK YOU to all two million of you!

We are excited by the fantastic panoramas you’ve created and chose to publish to Bing Maps. Millions of panoramas have been captured, and interactive views of 98 different countries have been posted. It’s wonderful to see the world through your eyes.

We’ve been featuring user created panoramas on the homepage since we launched. Here are just a few of the great photos we’ve been getting from you:
