The Steinway & Sons piano factory at the northern tip of Astoria (GMAP) has gotten a lot of love recently. Photographer Christopher Payne took a series of fascinating shots of pianos at all stages of the manufacturing process. He has captured the beauty of the wooden materials, mechanical parts, and precise work that goes into making the legendary instruments.

Rafael Octavio Gonzalez is not your typical photographer. He uses multiple images, exposures, composites, and technology to turn his shots into seamless 360-degree panoramas. The bold colors and skewed perspectives give the panoramic scenes a fantastical quality that captures the viewer’s imagination.
