This flickr (link below) page it too good. All you have to do is visit the link and wait for the page to load.
Do spend a minute on the page and you will know... out of the box.

I am not very sure as to how to categorize this. A panorama? No idea.

But the user has been very very creative. Taking these pictures is one thing, and arranging them (presenting them...) in way is all together a different art. nIce. Have fun.

Very nice. What Do You Call This? --> Mosaic art. That's what the commenter's are telling about this. Although we can manually cut the image, I think a photoshop action which does that, that is, cut the image into several parts, but still retaining those cutouts in a single image. But the point here is not that, he creatively used flickr to do something unique. Varalu, do you really think he took those images separately? And when I had a look at those 200 comments this is what Norby tells on one of them:

Cutting it up just for the sake of cutting it up would be a bit drab, yes. Tell a good story and it won't matter how you did it :lol:
I'm just waiting for somebody to put together an apartment block window series.

Sometimes each of the parts make for its own unique photograph. Here's what I tried, but alas it has too many parts, so can't use it on flickr.

Where does this work best: portraits or landscapes?

Panorama... this is something which I love creating. Taking shots and then stitching them. The only factor that matters is lighting. That is, getting the same exposure on all the panoramic parts.

Its not that accurate though.

A best way to do photo blog / dairy. Taking a photo with wide angle lens then cut out portions with story about it. Not really a new trick but its been in around the industry for years but only a handful get to use it creatively.

@len - yeah I think the photographer took these pictures individually and created a mosaic art in flickr. Very creative.
True ... There are softwares to do or get this effect. But whats the fun in doing that. :lol:
Its about having to do it on your own and showcase it. I think the person has brilliantly used the flickr base to showcase his pictures. For God's sake I will not believe it is a coincidence. he took the pictures keeping flickr in his mind.

And @len - Thanks for letting me know about the Mosaic art.

That's art of cropping :lol: . Well people try to be innovative, and try to fill all the spaces properly, You know what I mean, he did a couple of big photos, which are terrific, beautiful, original, but still remain just two photographs. So he divided them- maybe in proper quality- and filled a full page.

I like what he did, but sometimes when you have nothing to do, you try to be innovative. The art of cropping, did I call it properly??? :XD:

I discussed this over an open conversation with a client and he requested the pictures to be cut like what is shown above. Its called Tiles Art. Mosaic is now where closer to what is shown above. Mosaic is an art technique which requires different shade of colors to form a large image / finishing.

Tiles art is a photographer's underestimated technique that cuts a large picture into smaller piece and rearranged it into a grid layout. The term reflects to house construction when you arrange large ceramic tiles to form a seamless pattern. Not really identical in analogy but its way of preparation is almost the same. There is many ways to cut photos. Some preferred each image not to have the same size, creating certain concentration point / level of details.
