My first attampt with Panoramic photography, but it is quite a fun...
Now let me explain you what is ''Haram'' or ''Khana Kaba'' or bait ullah''
To Muslims around the world, the most sacred spot on earth is a black-draped, square shrine called the Kaaba, which stands in the central courtyard of the vast Al-Haram Mosque in Makkah. It is toward this spot that Muslims turn five times a day in prayer. And it is the goal of every devout Muslim to make a pilgrimage to the Kaaba at least once in a lifetime.

Forgive for my ignorance, but at first I could swear this was from Makkah so I was a bout to comment the title...please excuse me!
As for the more serious part I think this is simply an amazing photo that lets people around the world enjoy the beauty a sacred place like this has.
The setting for this photo is just great. It show that even these modern and materialistic times, people still have faith and devotion. I feel this is well presented here, especially with the Haram being framed by the surrounding structures of the city.
Overalle the photo looks great, the stritching is good and the colour saturation looks good as well. I do however feel that the photo is slightly overexposed, espceially over the roof of Haram.
Still, this is a lovely photo and deserves full respect.
Thank you for sharing.

good attempt, the sky is not perfect, i suggest the same exposure to each photo you make (i guess it's a stitch of different photos)
the view is interesting
i would have liked to see a large version...

A very beautiful panoramic view of Haram... I think you took from Zamzam Towers... You captured very beautiful view of Kaaba between the minarets. Also at the background Nur Mountain can be seen... Great job!
Have a good weekend.

Hi and congratulations! Why? because finally I can see a panoramic view on Mecca and the "black box". I can finally see that Mecca is not just an altar in desert, it is surrounded by hills or mountains, that is not just the center of the Islamic Universe, but also a fast-growing city. Again you knew how to bring the viewer into your environment by choosing good light and colors, and a good frame like always, consisting of white on top and bottom and the wings of the building for the left and right, assuring in this way the continuity and the flow of the panorama.

I've always liked this sacred place and the impressive image of religious men walking around the Kaaba.
Image is effective with this beautiful wide format.

your panorama picture is very interesting.I think that kaabe is the finest place in the world.

an excellent panorama indeed. The point of view is really great to depict the mosque.
Superbs clarity and well lighted.
Your response towards my al-Haram shot was really touching as my pilgrimage is the most wonderful spiritual journey in my life.
I stayed at Hotel Barakah, it was a really great experience. hoping to perform umrah soon.

Congratulations for this successful first attempt!
You've captured this view very well. Despite the bright light, the buildings don't seem overexposed. No wonder this is a sacred place for muslims. That mosque's arquitecture is impressive and incredibly beautiful, and of course that is apart from the spiritual meaning.
