Wow, if this is really a pinhole camera picture, it is amazingly sharp! Did you made the pinhole your self, to your Pentax body? Or did you use some dedicated camera obscura device?

Actually I think that tower is the camera obscura. So it is a picture of a camera obscura.

Ah, of cource! I was just yesterday reading of making a pinhole front piece to a DSLR, so I immediately thought of that, not properly looking at the subject in the picture

Still that picture has a wonderful deep focus!

Re; Camera Obscura

My apologies folks, it was a misleading title.
Here is a crop showing the camera. The rotating lens is on top of the dome and the darkened room is a few metres below.
(K10d,18~55mm lens)
