Arc de Triomphe - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

This panorama of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris was taken from the junction of the Avenue de la Grande Armee and Avenue Mac-Mahon. The Arc de Triomphe stands in the middle of a very busy and chaotic junction. Taking the pictures was not easy as there were so many cars continuously moving about, therefore it took quite some time to get the required images. This is one of the potential problems of shooting panoramas in segments.
