Here is a panorama I took of Edinburgh at night from Calton Hill in between heavy rain showers. What do you think?

I know it isn't perfect, but I haven't done many panoramas before and I quite like the way this one turned out.

Looks great to me mate, although it could be a tad bigger. Checked out your website too, impressive. The "Loch Morlich Reflections" image is fabulous! Did you code that site yourself? I only ask because I have to do something similar for my college course and I'm lost, lol.

Zorro: To create the site I used a free program called JAlbum (JAlbum.net). It's very easy to use once you get started and comes with lots of skins you can use for your site. I used a version of the "Chameleon" skin which I modified slightly to fit my site.

Alex168: I've done the same thing a few times lol!

A larger version of the image is available here.

ahhhhhhhhh. Sometimes it just works out perfect. This looks very serene to me. The panarama effect really worked out for you, fresh clean city, after the rain...perfect lighting. Checked out the larger version by clicking where you indicated, now am going back to check on your other work, since Z. said it was wonderful...on my way, now. Thanks calmac1991, this image is beautiful..a step above.

Great panorama calmac1991.

If you get the chance (although I wouldn't recommend it at night) get up Arthurs Seat for the best view of the city, you seem to have knack for for these panoramas! :D

OK. If you guys have read down this thread this far, go back to the place where you can click to see calmac's site. You will be so glad you did.

Stunning. My favorite, besides the one that Z. likes, is "the river tweed, in Autumn".

I could live there the rest of my life, and be happy. Thank you Calmac.
Incredible shots.

I second that patti.

Some beautiful pictures although not sure I would swap Southern California for the Scottish borders though. We get far too much rain in Scotland. :D
The scenery is stunning, so i'd keep the sun and look at the pics :lol:

Hey Patti, I'll swap with you in a flash. In fact I'm flying out as I speak. I've left my wellies and cagoule out for you, hope they fit.

California here I come...

Very nice panorama! The colour is awesome!
Haven't got time to check out the site now, just checked the intro screen ;) But I'll be sure to do it later on!
Nice job!

For anyone having trouble with stitching panoramas I found a neat app a while back (windows only, sorry) called autostitch. http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~mbrown/autostitch/autostitch.html works pretty well, its free just a single executable dont need to install anything.

Thanks for the comments.

I'll give autostitch a go sometime.

I agree about getting too much rain in Scotland (and the rest of the UK), but I guess it wouldn't be so green if we didn't...
