It'd take many words to describe Manhattan, and one of them is certainly "photogenic." The shot above (taken by Sergey Semonov) has just won an Epson's Pano Award, and we must admit, it's a truly fantastic photograph. It is worth noting that this isn't a true photograph, depending on your definition: it's a 3D panorama that's been made by stitching together multiple shots from a helicopter ride. The panorama was then flattened into the product seen above. (You can see the side-effects from this process at the borders of the image). We'd still encourage you to view it in full-size, however.
