    Are Germans perfectionists?

    Are Germans perfectionists? Well, probably not all of them.
    Want some proof? Enjoy these two photos:

    If my limited linguistic skills serve me, I think the title of the 2nd one could suggest that the curved horizon is a major artistic component of the image, possibly even deliberately introduced.

    The first one, however...! Someone got carried away with the cloning tool?

    The first picture is labeled wrong...that's obviously somewhere on the coast of Japan about a year ago.
    Does the picture turn out differently than what you see in the viewfinder?

    Technically, of course, is bungled the power of three. Note the horizon. As you can see the stitching errors quite extreme. The image comes from the app as a 5392x800 pixel panorama. So it's not nearly as great as if it had been taken with a DSLR.

    But it's kinda funny, like the iPhone with this app makes the Pano. Here, the app is measured with the gyro in iPhone4 how far you rotate the phone and then makes the new image automatically at the right moment. So you start simply and then rotate the phone in such a way as if you were filming.

    Well located next to a road accessible and quite photogenic, it is worthwhile to put on a clear day in the middle and trying to landscape the surrounding area other trademarks and stone monuments identify.
