This is quite a "busy" image, with a ton of different twists and turns, lines, trains, cars, bridges, waterfalls, informal settlement (aka South Africa), cliffs and mountains, with a river to run through it. The cloud formation in the middle was just the cherry on the cake.

TECHNICAL DETAIL:

Panorama, captured with a Mavic Pro 2. Stitching was done in the drone, not manually, and a awesome job, thanks DJI. Could not find any overlapping textures etc.

I had to crop a bit off the left hand side, as the sun proofed too hot, and most of the whites were blown out.
Not a lot of post processing work on this. Opened up some shadows, crunched the highlights a tad (all in Lightroom)
Added a bit of sharpness in the sky. (Adobe Camera Raw)
Added a light Vignette just to focus a bit more on the middle.
Then, lastly (and the step that unfortuanatly always makes the image loose a lot of quality, detail and overall sharpness) compressed, save for web and convert to jpeg from Raw.

The compression algorythm of websites (not sure about this one, but true of Facebook etc) is such, that a huge amount of detail is lost.
Anyone that want to know a bit more about the PP work, is welcome to ask on this thread.
2019 was a year of absolute magic, thanks to DJI and their awesome drones.

Thank you. I spend a few hours just looking, photographing and enjoying that cloud formation. It did not disappoint, had the most awesome reds and pinks when the sun set. Would check and maybe post a shot of that later.

There was some kind of 'edit' in the link. You did not post a link to the post itself.
At least, that was the message I got.

True.
Not many people do visit that part.
I also promoted some of my earlier entries.
(I skipped this one, since there are so many great entries already)

There is a couple of super images from guys that always post their best. (take note, I do not judge videos, as that is definitely not anything I am good at.)
I should probably also just skip it, but honestly, no one knows what the judges and juries look for in images. Post, you might get lucky (as I wish I would.....
Would love a Osmo though, not really interested in the MINI.

Would have been nice if they could have elaborated more on what criteria they would choose from.
