For this WWP's event I was eager to submit a picture that could actually represent the best of 2010, and there are some reasons why I eventually picked this panorama up out of the bunch.

The first is that this picture sums up many of the good things I've done throughout this year, the latter is that I really enjoyed the making of this panorama. By a photographic point of view it's been pretty hard to get the result I had in my mind, mainly because of the lighting and the moving subjects as well, yet I'm rather satisfied with the result. As far as I know it is a brand new idea, and it somehow reminds me of some Escher's non-sense drawings.

I would like to thank Chiara for the patience she had while shooting this panorama and, most important, for having turned my 2010 into the best year possible.
