Potala Palace, seat of the Dalai Lama, shown using a 360 degree panorama taken from the Potala Palace square in the evening. The directional light present when the photo was taken made post-processing incredibly painstaking and since I have limited experience with these photos, I made a mental note to attempt this type of panorama when the sun is directly overhead... just food for thought in case you wanted to try this planet panorama.
