This is just awesome!!! I really love the architecture, these magnificent buildings.

Thank you for welcoming C/C, if I may, I have attached a rendition to avoid lots of words... I like the panorama, but the two buildings on the right half would make an interesting panorama in itself... and using the system of thirds... would a little more water foreground (and thus building reflection) be a good idea. Many, many thanks for this beautiful pano you did... excellent work in Photoshop!!!

Really a good panorama for a first time, and handheld as well! You must have a strong and steady pair of hands.

Panorama's are difficult, sometimes - because it is hard to tell where you should end it, unless there is a natural "break" in the landscape. Also, it is difficult to show-off the real merits of a panorama, because of the constrictions of the page-with.

I like it, Wonger!

After looking at the big panorama post # 5 I am even more impressed. Lovely reflections!

The only thing I would change is the leftmost building which is chopped in halve. Since most of these buildings resemble each other anyway, I would get rid of it by cropping just to the right edge of this halve buliding, there seem to be a natural gap in the skyline there.

Good work, Wonger!

What - In here you mean? The maximum 1024 in any direction and the maximum 253 kb's - if you upload to Steve's server. If you link from another server I don't think there is a prescribed pixel-length but it pays to keep it 'within reason', I guess.

I usually show them in two seizes. Have a look at my latest panorama: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/la...-panorama.html and you will see that I do not embed bigger than 1280 pixels for the big one and 1024 for small resolution-viewing.
