There is quite a bit of skill required for photography. Though, once in a while even a beginner photographer can get lucky with the right exposure and distance to his or her subject.
Taking multiple photographs, however, from all angles in a plane, leaves no room for error and decreases the chance of luck in order to achieve a professional photograph.
ABS Members held a contest for "360° Photography" proposed by Pat tastic on September 9, 2005.
The entries contain mismatching of exposure between attached areas, and many parts are off-angle. Certain people even show up more than once in a photograph due to the nature of 360 degree photography, but perfection isn't expected. This contest was a real challenge for the community's photographers.
Here are 8 entries.
