This one could be titled "How many mistakes can you make when taking a Panorama?"
Mistake one, not knowing about nodal points and walking around the end of the pier to take the photo's. Nodal point is about 5m!
Mistake two, not taking enough foreground so some had to be stolen from other parts of the image.
Mistake three, not thinking that two rows of nine images combine to make a 584 Mb image which makes my old computer week at the knees.
Mistake four, not taking three rows on a higher zoom setting so some of the detail could actually be seen (that is North Cornwall coastline running out of the left hand side of the image, St Ives is over the beach).
Mistake ... well, you get the picture. Final (flat) image came down to about 1Mb, this version is about 1.8K ~ hope I've left enough detail to be useful.

Fantastic detail Andrew, how do you stitch these photos together into such awesome panoramas?

PhotoShop has an awesome stitcher ~ works alone irregular lines so blocking is nearly invisible. I had to buy more RAM to use it though! (18 * 5M layers!) Then flattened into a (still mahoosive) single image before patching the gaps. Glad I didn't do it as a high definition image :-)

I've Zoomified this one as a test. 2,200 tiles! Who knew!! Look here to see the results. Comments welcome
