"There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened."

Hello Humus,
Your cubemap textures are really wonderful. I wonder how you create them : do you use any special equipment (except a digital camera) ? Do you use a fish-eye lens ? Do you use a tripod ? Is HDRShop a software you're using ?
I've tried to create cubemap textures by first taking photos and creating a panoramic picture (with Autostitch, or Hugin), and then trying to convert it to a cubemap vertical cross texture, but it does not give a satisfying result (everything is distorded).
I've done some research on Google to find good documents, but I didn't find anything interesting. Maybe have you some links ?

Sincerely
