I stitched together a few images with ICE earlier and surprised how well it turned out.

and I didn't know about the Photosynth website..

If I get time I'll go back up and try a larger one..

Nice, gonna try cropping it?

I had forgotten about ICE. Tried it years ago and it failed to impress then, but it looks like they've done a lot of updates to it so I'll have to try it again.

Did try photosynth before, that reminds me I was thinking of doing one of the local park...

Thanks popo, I tried cropping it and cloning but it just didn't look right. when I have time I'll mess about with ICE it should be able to do a flat panorama or maybe I just needed more images to join.

See from 4:00 onwards. You will need Photoshop CS5. Your photo is great.

Confirmed, however this seems to only work for the bottom half portion of the image. It got too confused with the sky...

Still, better than nothing!

Yeh, I didn't have a problem retouching and I did use content aware for some bits, I just thought the image lost it's depth. I'll try it again soon with more images to try and get a full panorama.

I think it looks just fine without cropping, since it feels like you're looking at the view through binoculars (makes the viewer more engaged).
