God, you guys are female dogy. It's a cool photo someone took, edited and put online. Wheaton's Law, everyone.
The photo got really good and it looks amazing.
not amazing!!! hdr=eww plus the grain plus the job at making a panorama
Grain is from high ISO (due to low light).
Also, this isn't a panorama, it's a very wide angle shot using a fish-eyed lens...
This photo is definitely a panorama. It was badly stitched together, as is evident from the roof-tile and the wheel on the truck in the far bottom right.
This photo is cool but it has clearly been shopped, edited and altered. Hardly natural. A little less color effect and a little more "nature" would be nice.
That's very bad HDR, if you want nice ones: 500px.com
Grainy, bad hdr, hard to look at from the crazy angle, and waaayyyy too much foreground. The actual subject is lost in all the extra space.
