I've got you again Kevin! :D Trying to get away with over-broadening your panorama's, weren't you? Just right to the middle you just copied a bunch of trees and some miles of mountains. OK, they're beautiful trees and great mountains, but don't you think you're overdoing it a bit here? ;))

Jeroen, I can NOT believe I just now realized what was wrong with this shot!! I knew there was something but it just now hit me like a ton of bricks! Do you see that small wisp of cloud on either side of the "break" in the scene (right 1/3), just above the mountain range? The photo should line up at that spot but I missed it, and apparently aimed too far to the right with my camera. I don't do panoramas on the computer. One of the neatest features of my camera provides a two-shot, or a three-shot panoramic "stitch" feature, This scene is directly out of the camera, and is horrible craftsmanship on my part!

I love my panoramic photos though - this one was probably the toughest to earn so far in 2010. Take a look at this pluton on the map - kind of neat.

My camera came with software that can stitch photos, on the computer. I don't use it much. I did read a good tip on Pano, shoot panoramas in portrait orientation. You need a few more takes, but your panorama gets more height, and usually more foreground. Useful for river panoramas and thing like that. But I guess you can not stitch those in your camera.
