The difficulty of choosing my best panorama of 2009In 2009 I have made 435 panoramas . Among these, stunning panoramas made in Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, during travel in Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Austria, Spain and Portugal and USA, in towns like Manila, Kuala Lumpur, Malacca, Berlin,Budapest and Timisoara, in Lisbon, Porto and Madrid, in Berlin, and Szeczin Poland, in Prague and Brno, in Hamburg and Dresden , in Chicago, Albuquerque, the Grand Canyon and Los Angeles, on top of the German Alps , in historic towns like Rothenburg ob der Tauber in Germany and many other places.
I have chosen the panorama made from the observatory of the John Hancock center in Chicago because of the stunning view on Chicago downtown. Due to the reflections on the windows there are a lot of visual flaws, but overall I like it because it gives you the feeling of being hovering over Chicago in an imaginary helicopter.
