I don't understand why would anyone vote this so low. Although technically you break the rule of the contest as it states the photo must be comprised of 3 or more shots, but this shot is excellent IMO.

I think people associate the term "panorama" as images that you couldn't get with a standard wide angle focal length. A lot of shots are stitched and stacked for resolution but they still look like they could have been taken as a single shot. The only thing that detracts from this shot is the roof of the building bottom-right. It might have been better if taken from the front edge of the roof of that building, not that I know if that was possible or not. The verticals are excellent, though.

I actually like the roof there. I might've darkened the big ventilation (?) pipe in that corner, but even as it is it is not that distracting.

I appreciate it guys. There was no chance of another angle from this shot (some climbing/balance involved and I'd rather get a 2 here than have ended up on the sidewalk haha)
