Panorama

A panorama (formed from Greek πᾶν "all" + ὅραμα "sight") is any wide-angle view or representation of a physical space, whether in painting, drawing, photography, film, seismic images or a three-dimensional model. The word was originally coined in the 18th century by the English (Irish descent) painter Robert Barker to describe his panoramic paintings of Edinburgh and London. The motion-picture term panning is derived from panorama.

My friend Kyleigh took this photo while we were in Vegas. It's a panorama of the South Point Hotel and Casino. She didn't expect it to turn out this way but, man it's cool! The building itself looks like two separate buildings put together to make a 90 degree turn so maybe that's why it turned out so weird...
