Taken using a Pentax ist DS at 16mm F8 200 ISO. Consists of 9 photos from Zenitar 16mm Fish-eye. It was De-fished in PSP-10 and stitched with Autostitch. It is a large Panorama, so pan away.

Wow, I'm impressed!

Actually I'm surprised you needed nine images to get a 180 field of view with a lens that wide, but it's very well put together either which way, and an impressive viewpoint and composition too.

Good one

John.

The reason it uses 9 photos is that I come from the school where we use 45%-50% overlap.

Excellent!! I started panning and admiring this lovely scene and when I got to the right side of the photo and saw the path going along the canal I was really taken by surprise! Awesome work!

Thank you Bob for the kind words. This would have been a total of 360 degrees, but it would be a huge file so I decided to make it a 180 degree panorama.

Wow, what a beautiful scene. The only thing I don't like about it are the strangely curved powerlines at upper left, otherwise this picture's perfect.

Thanks for the remarks, curved lines high in a frame are often visible even after de-fishing a fish-eye lens.
