Panoramic photos capture an entire landscape with one smooth swoop of the camera. But add a moving human to the scene, and the bucolic countryside can look like it's been overrun by mutants.

Photographers hoping to snap epic panoramas end up with snapshots epic for an unexpected reason. Deformed heads, Stretch Armstrong-style limbs and faces missing features all happen when panoramas go wrong — or right, depending on your perspective.

Proceed to shoot in panorama with caution, amateur photogs. And visit the r/panoramicsgonewrong on Reddit for even more panoramic photo fails.
