This is Jupiters Casino at Broadbeach on the Gold Coast. I was out shooting panoramic virtual tours late this afternoon/evening, I ended up with about 40 panos over 3hrs.

This image is from a pano sequence, but it's not from a stitched file. I always shoot the first image facing north, so the 6 images I shoot horizontally fall where they may. In this instance, the casino across the water fell perfectly within a single shot of the Nikon 16mm fullframe fisheye lens. I haven't cropped the width one pixel.

The building curves around, so even though it's shot with a fisheye, it's doesn't look very distorted. All in all a very serendipitous photo.
