Something about that last one with the cow makes me laugh.

You did a good job stiching them together, what did you use?

They're all pretty good especially the 3rd one.

Wonderful shots.
I particularly appreciate the girl in orange on the right side of the second panorama.
It's a nice color mix and it introduces "a surprise" as the eye goes from left to right.

Great definition in the cows picture. Great shot.

I like the birds in the midlde of the fourth one. The third one is cool too. They all are nice and sharp, well done.

Those are some really great pics!

I do have to admit, water is the hardest thing to make panos of. The reason is simple. The waves are always moving so when you take pic#1 a wave will be in one spot, but by the time you pan to the right, the wave has moved to a new location. This makes pic#1 and pic#2 mismached. I still don't know how you mannaged to do it. All your photos are seamless!


Just a question, was the unusual angle in some of the photos intentional? I actually like the effect in the photo with the sign, but some of the other ones don't seem to agree with me. Paint Shop Pro 8 has a straightening tool that allows you to align a line with either a horizontal, veritical, or specified angle, and then it rotates the image to correct it. The neat thing I like abuot this feature is there is a "auto crop" check box where it will automaticaly crop the image back to the original ratio rectangle as it corrects the rotation.

Perhaps Photo Shop has a similar function?

Otherwise, Great Pics!
Keep shootin,
Dan O.

Thanx for the feedback....as this was my first attempt at photography (let alone panoramas!) i pretty much turned a "blind eye" to horitontal levels, ect. I was just lucky that most of the shots looked reasonably composed. I don't know of such a feature in photoshop. The photos were stiched together manually using "layer masks".
