York's eclectic architectural mix at Duncombe Place ( Must be viewed at max size for best effect )

Every time I visit York I see this scene and have wanted to capture the amazing mix of architectural wonders but the vastness of it all and the endless comings and goings of traffic and pedestrians has always thwarted me. Not one to be beaten though I tried again on a particularly bright day when I could use a very fast shutter speed and voila here is the result after stitching the 84 frames needed. The lens distortion, the massive contrasts and of course the movement were all problems but it seems I have overcome all of those and more with the exception of one small error that I've disguised slightly but can be seen if you are observant, ( Neil G you are excluded from answering since you've seen this happen before in my shots :o) .
