Red on red on red; Orgrimmar is another scene people keep harping on about. Orgrimmar is tricky to shoot because the city just plain doesn’t look good from above. It is turned in, turned down on the canyons it inhabits, and overwhelms the foot-level visitor while underwhelming the aerial one. I ran an alt around the city for a while, but because of the smog, I finally got my Alliance character and shot the city from Durotar. Let’s not ignore the distance: I resorted to capturing Orgrimmar from the next zone over.

Cool trivia: You can see six zones in this panorama: Mount Hyjal, Durotar, Orgrimmar, Azshara, Ashenvale, and the Northern Barens.
