I've chosen this panorama as may 'Best Of' contribution, because I think this one is really interesting. It really shows the hype nowadays when something is happening: Everybody is trying to capture the moment with a camera. I did this, too. But contrary to everybody else I not only captured the guard, but also everybody else shooting.


The panorama was not easy to stitch because all the poeple with their cameras and smart devices were trying to get a good view of the guard and were moving around during the shoot. I however had no problem getting a good view because of the elevated camera position on a double monopod construction.
