When attempting photo-real CG renderings using high dynamic range images (HDRI) with image-based lighting (IBL), you need an accurately photographed environment that contains the full dynamic range available. Please check out my 360 degree panoramic high dynamic range (HDR) images for use in all types of CG rendering.
The HDRI environment panoramas captures the real world lighting data in 360 degree.
Huge dynamic range
24EV dynamic range coverage, using 32bit HDR files, which contains every information from the darkest to the brightest area.
Maximum resolution of panoramas is 17.000 x 8.500 pixels, which is more then enough for HDRI rendering.
The full spherical panorama covers light from every direction.

Note: This photos doesn’t represent the two endpoint of dynamic range. They are far from there 😉
