Le Parkour

As usual, select the "best" pano of the year is not an easy work and could be a very subjective assignment. This year was maybe the more productive panorama year of my life and I have hundred of them to pick up only one.

I just selected this one maybe because this has a very good critic from the visitors on my site and was really a challenger for me made that. This pano is one of a group of panos from a training of "Le Parkour". They are a multi exposure with the camera in a burst mode and then combined in PS. You can see some others panos with the same theme here:

Le Parkour or l'art du déplacement (the art of displacement) is an urban activity of French origin, the aim of which is to move from point to point as efficiently and quickly as possible, using only the abilities of the human body. It is not a extreme sport and never should be take as a competition. It require not only a physical body preparation as also a brain control that let fight against their own fright and limitations.
