This is easy: I used the panorama I liked most this year. I think it is my best, because there's so much to see in the panorama.


My original intention when shooting was to use it as an entry for the fall event (Transportation). Unfortunately the results were not that good. I used neither a real nor a virtual tripod. I just tried to rotate around a virtual point on a glass floor, holding the camera only 10cm above it. Thus I had to fight same really bad stitching errors, bacause of not rotationg around the NPP (No Parallax Point). I just did not have the time to retouch everything and so I decided to use the panorama for this "Best Of" event.

The Location is inside a new part of the "Deutsches Museum" that shows only exhibits related to transportation technology.
