Warsaw by night

Oh yes! What a splendid sight befell my gaze as I sauntered out of the Marriott this evening to catch my train home... This is the result of two photos merged into a panorama. Click to enlarge to see in its fullest dimensions. Hand-held at one-third of a second at f3.5, 320 ISO, lens zoomed out to 18mm (27mm full-frame equivalent).

The majestic sweep from Złote Tarasy to the left, past the Palace of Culture to my destination, Warszawa Śródmieście station to the right. Quite a magnificent view! Come back in 20 years, and hopefully, the Palace will be ringed by skyscrapers, standing at a respectable distance, looking down on Stalin's gift to the Polish people.

This time last year:
Tales of the Riverbank

This time two years ago:
Okęcie before the funerals

This time three years ago:
At the General's house
