太和殿全景 Hall of Supreme Harmony (Panorama) / 中國北京故宫 Forbidden City, Beijing, China / SML.20140430.6D.31390-SML.20140430.6D.31406-Pano.i17.C.132.63x45.69.P1

This panorama shows the path leading towards the Hall of Supreme Harmony (太和殿) after entering the Gate of Supreme Harmony (太和門). It can easily be seen that all the roofs inside the Forbidden City are glazed in the Imperial yellow (reserved for the emperor), and their walls painted in red for good fortune in Chinese culture.

 

17 captures were stitched together using cylindrical projection, with a field of view (FOV) of 132.63 x 45.69. Photographed handheld with the Canon EOS 6D + Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L USM.
