Recently, I was in Los Angeles on a business trip. They put us up in the Marina Del Rey Hotel and I took this panorama one morning before going to work.
I didn't have a tripod with me, so this is all a handheld panorama. That's why it's 17 shots, I just stood in one place an spun around to take the pictures. That's also why the exposure gets so dark when it hits the hotel. It would have been too difficult to change the exposure and match up the previous shots.
