Hello Ninja friends :-)
Second time here
Bill Thanks for remembering me to post.

This time, my panos are not about beauty and happiness.

I witnessed a real war in the streets of Rio. Drug dealers figthing with police put fire and destroyed lots of properties.
Explosions, fireshots, dead people, fire, smoke, WAR.
I was there !!!

Using my dear Nikon D700 and the lovely Nodal Ninja 5 with an RD-16 on top of a homemade pole I've captured all the intense moments.
Sorry no sound this time.
I had to run all the time to avoid being shot by a lost bullet.

I hope you guys like it and please show to others.
It's the future of photo or panojournalism to make normal people fell like being there on the action.

Excellent stuff -
We get many in the news media doing this for their news websites - this is pano journalism at it's finest :-)
I am sure the adrenaline was rushing through your views - you did good keeping a steady hand.

thanks for sharing.
