Another panorama (this time during the day). This one is from the Eildon Hills in the Scottish Borders and is a full 360 degree panorama. Unfortunately, the horizon isn't quite straight and at least one of the joins is clearly visible in full view because the sun went behind a cloud :evil: . What do you think?

p.s. does anyone know how I can make those "Virtual Reality" panorama things you see on the internet where you drag the cursor to move around, preferably with free software. If you don't know what I mean, there are examples here: http://www.panoramas.dk/

It's great Calmac, I love these kinds of shots. I used to take a lot more of them as my old Olympus compact has a Panorama setting which then allowed me to easily stitch the images in the accompanying Camedia software. I've only recently realised that I don't need this, and can just use Photoshop instead. More likely, I'll just crop a section out of a wider, larger picture - the good thing about shooting at 10mp. Won't give me 360 degrees like yours though.

The panorama was stitched from 14 portrait photos.

14mm (28mm equiv.)
F/11
1/80 sec
ISO 100

I'll probably give it another go sometime because I'm not quite happy with how it turned out (horizon not straight etc.) and it's not far from my house.

Nice pano.

The countryside is quite similar to where I live (country Victoria, Australia).

You should look at Photoshop's (CS2+) shadow highlight filter. It can bring your shadows up a lot without clipping your highlights.

I will post some of my panoramas when time permits.

Thats a great pano. There is so much detail in the full view - can't wait to see what you come up with when you re shoot it :D
