Stand In/On/Beside the Seven Wonders of the Modern World

Earlier this year a group called the New7Wonders Foundation held an online contest to construct a new list of wonders, seeing as how the only remaining structure from the original roster are the Great Pyramids in Giza.

On July 7, 2007, they announced the winners: the Great Wall of China, the Colosseum in Rome, the Petra, the Taj Mahal, Machu Picchu, Chichen Itza, and the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro.

Just came across a site called Panoramas.dk, which specializes in creating virtual panoramas, which allow users to feel like they're standing in the middle of somewhere far from home.

They've put up a series of these panoramas highlighting all 7 Modern Wonders of the World.

I've certainly seen virtual panoramas like this before--they're use is on the rise in rental and real estate markets, for one--but I thought these were especially cool as the picture quality is better than most I've seen, plus their subject matter is so fascinating and on such a grand scale.
