This is a 32-bit floating point 360 degree HDR panoramic equirectangular image of a beautiful sunset at Arpoador rocks in Ipanema beach Rio de Janeiro Brazil. This image can be used in any 3D package for Image Based Lighting IBL. The full range of light in this scene is contained in the HDR image and will be strong enough to illuminate your 3D scene and cast shadows. I shot this 7 level exposure wedge, with a range from 1/10th sec to 1/2500 in step size of 1 and 1/3 EV’s. That gives a range of over 9 EV’s of light in this one exterior pano.
One special thing about this pano is after capturing the wedged photos, I quickly hid the tripod and shot 50 pictures of the exact spot so I could later create a full textured 3D photogrammetry model of the area. This 3D model is included with color matched texture, in formats obj, fbx, and maya ascii so you can place your object in the perfect scaled physical space as well as the lighting at that moment.

Exact location of the shot is Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Arpoador beach, on the rocks, google map latlong, -22.990010, -43.191269
