CG HDR skies

I’m happy to report that Marcel Vijfwinkel, the man behind the enormously popular CGTextures.com, and his accomplice Wojtek Starak have now launched CGSkies.com – source of the super high-res HDR sky maps.
The beauty about CGSkies’ maps is that their very high resolution (up to 15,000 pixels wide) makes it possible to use them both as light sources and as backplates, eliminating the need for separate LDR backplates (though you will need quite a bit of RAM to use them).
