[align=left]Looks really nice. I love the general composition. The trees on both sides seem to 'hold in' the sky and it really works well with the colors. The only thing that has me worried is that I think I can see the stitch areas (in the water the color changes from blue to gray-ish real suddenly, as well as in the clouds on the left side). It looks like the exposures or something is different in each of the shots. Nice for a first try though.

Hey E.S., looks pretty good as far as the view you have. Just needs come cleaning up with the stitching. If you are using photoshop's auto merge or whatever it's called, I have heard there are better options to put it nicely. autostitch is something I have heard works good, but have not tried it. I dl'd your shot and circled the stitching lines I saw right away. A good way to find them is make your viewing window smaller than the pic and scroll from side to side looking for the seams. These can be taken care of with cloning, but it takes a while if you have a lot of them. Good shot, better than my first try!

Hmmm I can not see any stitch marks on my end and the colors are all even where it looks like a normal panoramic print. Tried viewing on my desktop LCD monitor and my laptop cant see anything wrong.

I see the stitch marks. Cubs did a good job atpointing them out. However this is a beautiful picture. I had a pano that i thought was great on my old system. But when i looked at it on my new system i was embarrassed i did it.

if you would have gotten up at 4 am yesterday(Friday the 25th)and been at four or five electronic stores at the same time.... You might (this in no way implies an actual fact) have been able to get a good deal on a new LCD.

Me ? ? ? I slept in., then watched the fights on the news.
