I think we're going to split the votes on this (I entered a very similar shot). Best of luck!

GreyGoose: What an exquisite photo. Must have been a stunning sight. The supernumerary arcs on the inside are nice. However, I find the image a bit surrealistic and disturbing because the bows appear distorted, the secondary (upper) bow more strongly so. They must be circular arcs, but look parabolic. Is it barrel distortion from the lens, or maybe a side effect of stitching?

I noticed that, and compared it to a single shot. They looked quite similar, so I don't know...

50/50. I'm not a whiz, I guess. Easily fooled.

Yes, and McDonalds coffee might be hot, and don't use your hair dryer while standing in your bath.
