This is the Thone Room at Kyungbokgung Palace where official meetings and formal gatherings were held during the Joseon Dynasty.
I like this panorama since it shows Korean architecture and intricate detail on a scale that is rare.
Some historical info:
Kyungbokgung was the main palace during the Joseon Dynasty's 500 year history (1392-1910). It was built in 1395 by King Lee Seong-Gye (King Taejo), when he moved the capital city from Gyeseong to Seoul. The word 'Kyungbok' translates to 'Shining Happiness'. The name was given as a tribute to the happiness and prosperity of Joseon's Kings, and the Korean people.
The main panorama was made with 8 images (6+1+1).
Additional images were taken to capture highlight detail.
All images recorded in RAW mode, and converted with Adobe Camera Raw.
ISO 100, ~f/8, Bracket (1/13, 1/200)
