This one gave me some work to do. I tried to get a sort of 180 degres view from the Corcovado statue, so I took several continous shots, then, with PS, I joined them all and I tried to clean as much as possible of the edge lines. And for those who may never be able come around, I felt like giving some guidelines. For instance, I plot where is the Maracana Football Stadium, the International Airport, the City Center, and mainly, the South Zone of Rio, where we find mostly middle range and high social class. The most poor districts are a bit far from the coast (far left of Maracana stadium). I hope you will enjoy it.

Very interesting shot, and I actually like how you have added some information about the locations. Not strictly 'art', but in this case it doesn't matter because it's a very informative photo. The only minor point for me is that the horizon is not quite level - if you can correct that this shot would be even better.

Lovely panorama! I notice some stitch marks though, particularly on the left hand frames - I think you might find it easier to use something like PTassembler, it takes a little work, but it is generally easier than doing it manually. Thanks for naming the landmarks, it's rare that I learn something from a panorama - but you've managed that here, and that's what TrekEarth is all about! Good work :-D

Excellente composition Bruno. Et quel travail pour la réalisation de ce panorama digne de figurer dans un livre de géographie.
Excellent Bruno composition. And which work for the realization of this worthy panorama to appear in a book of geography. Perfect.

Nice view, very informative. It's crazy, but I've never been up there! I've been to Rio several times... at work. Thanks for sharing this full view.
I just think you could have pointed Santos Dummont airport (next to "Gloria"), as I think it's quite "funny" to land there (if you're not afraid of airplanes) as it looks like you are going to land over the sea... until the final and glorious moment it reachs the ground!
And, as Adrian said, there's an easy way to make a panorama, as there are some software that do it without effort. You've done it the hard way! You should deserve three points for that.

I agree with Guto absolutely, Bruno.
I would also remind you about 'rio-niterói bridge', another of the greatest monuments, so as to speak, in your great city.
50 smileys for your effort!

Very nicely done panorama that shows how complex is the geographic aera on wich Rio has been built. It's always fascinating to see.
