I know because I was standing underneath it, I love doing portrait panoramas, it's a lot harder but well worth it, oh and so was my Dubai cruise.

Frank gives a good critique. I have to admit to having noticed the sharpness issue, but there is a slight halo to the top right of the building. I'm not sure if this is an artefact of the post processing or a cloud - whichever - it sadly distracts the eye.

I have no problem with the lean - I think it works. I do, however, wonder about your settings - a smaller aperture and greater depth of field would help. Exposure spot on.

Theres a great deal of visible evidence of post processing work in this image, including two vertical lines in the right in the sky, and a dark patch at the edge on the left, again in the sky. It appears oversharpened, and contrast also seems excessive, and uneven. The shot can indeed be very impressive, but more care is needed in post processing.

Loaded a mod with some issues addressed.

Thanks a lot for the advice, I knew there was something wrong with it but couldn't put my finger on it, I used photoshop to merge the pictures, then came away from it, I too can see the tilt (one of my pet hates) and I see about the aperture, I'm definitely going back so I'll try and do it properly, I also have a new Canon 600D which is so much better than the 400D, I didn't seem able to use the manual settings on the 400 but it's better on the 600, so again thanks and I'll try again.
