Recent developments in digital photography, a field that develops at an amazing rate, have enabled photographers to create images of extraordinarily high resolutions.
Today, these resolutions are often measured in gigapixels for images composed of more than one billion pixels, greater than a thousand times more information than is captured by a 1-megapixel digital camera. Such images are usually created by taking many individual shots, and then stitching these together into a digital mosaic.
The results are technically innovative and often visually outstanding. This post showcases 20 of the best high-resolution photographs, amazing pictures to astound and inspire. Many of these photographs are of cities and landscapes, as these are amongst the best subject matter for this type of image making.

NASA's Cassini orbiter snaps unbelievable picture of Saturn
By Mike Wehner, Tecca
Science fiction movies have spoiled us on high definition views of our planetary neighbors, but real-life photographs with equal jaw-dropping potential are exceedingly rare. That's what makes NASA's awe-inspiring snapshot of Saturn (hi-res version here) such a stunning piece of eye candy.
Taken by NASA's Cassini robotic orbiter, the shot was captured from the dark side of Saturn as the Sun's bright rays illuminated every piece of dust and debris circling the planet. Cassini has offered astronomers a never-before-seen look at Saturn and revealed more information about the planet than any craft before it. The craft has taken so many pictures of the ringed wonder that they were recently made into a short flyby film that looks like it was created by George Lucas rather than a robotic space explorer.
The Cassini probe was launched in 1997 and took a further 7 years to reach Saturn's orbit. The total cost of its overarching objective of studying the ringed planet stands at a staggering $3.26 billion. However, the wealth of information it has wrought — including amazing pictures like the one above, and recordings of massive lightning storms on the planet — have already made it one of the best investments in space exploration. Hopefully Juno — which began a 5-year trek to Jupiter just last month — will bring us some equally stunning shots of Saturn's neighbor.
