This looks like you took several rows of photos and stitched them together. I would guess three. It is more difficult than a panorama of just a single row but really worth it. A beautiful panorama.

I took the panorama with the camera in portrait orientation to fit the height of the bridge in. So that meant more photos horizontally to get the width. Thanks for the comment.

I had learned that trick a while back, I believe on my own. But then I stopped taking panoramas for about a year. Had to rediscover it. "Gee, this had worked before..." But yes, if you want to do something with tall, vertical structures the camera should go on its side. 360s should likely be with normal orientation. Hemisphere panoramas should be treated as vertical, but with no zoom. You wouldn't be able to fit zoom in anyway. And then if you are talking about a panorama of a tall object, a single skyscraper that is nearby, you probably want to rotate the photos prior to stitching so that instead of passing through many degrees of latitude the skyscraper will pass through many degrees of longitude. This reduces the distortion of most common projections. Afterwards you turn the stitched panorama right side up.
