Shot this last September. Tried to capture the vastness of North Dakota's prairies. I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks for the comment Walter!

This pan is composed of five shots, eachwith an approx 50% overlap. It was shot at 1/400 @ F4. I stiched it together in Arcsoft's Panoramic Maker 3.0. Very little post-processing in Photoshop.

My camera was a Panasonic Lumix FZ-20 which does a pretty nice job, although I stepping up to a Canon 30D within the next couple of weeks. All I need to decide on is which two lens best fit into my budget.

Thanks again... I'm always looking for constructive comments that will help me grow in this passion that I so enjoy!!

Thanks Reanimator... it is considerably wider, the ends have been cropped to fit a finished standard of 30" X 12" for a series that I'm working on.

It's a little subjective. A lot depends on how you want to use this shot. Really wide panos look great on the top of a web page. For printing, I prefer a little more modest ratio. Too wide and it's hard to find a wall to put it, and you pretty much have to walk right up to it to see the details.

I like the way you've done this.
