    It's supposed to look that way.

    It was going to be seamless and smooth, but I didn't have enough images to do that, and then I coudln't get a panorama program to work on the Mac, so I gave up and made this rough version, which I also like.

    Nice work Dunstan! Were you on your own?

    I tried my hand at a Panorama the other day but like yourself couldn't find a stitcher for OS X. So I had to do it by hand, and with a little help from the healing brush it turned out alright.

    It looks funky, but the idea is there ;)
    If you could do this perfectly, it would be astonishing, but then again, it would seem as just an ordinary big photo (with wide lens, that is).

    The stitcher that came with my Canon Ixus IIs works wonders. I've tried the stitcher built into Photoshop, but it requires some work with a healing brush or clone tool to make the seams look nice.

    I have made a quick test, using the standard settings on both: is made using the photostich application from Canon. is made using Photomerge in Photoshop.

    I think the difference, especially around the seams, is clear. The pictures are from a recent trip to Kjuge in southern Sweden. I don't know the girls in the picture, they just wouldn't get out of the way.

    Hey D --

    Did you happen to speak to the man on the right with the gray shirt and dark baseball cap? Just curious. It's always fun to read anecdotes from your conversations, or those you've overheard. He looks kind of ordinary though, although that's not a crime. Great shots, btw.

    Holy Moly!

    I misspelled the link to my weblog on my above comment! What a dope I am!

    (Uuhhh ... that's not ... <em>mine</em>.)

    The horror! That's what I get for using Blogger--being too lazy to actually finish my own design.

    Link now fixed, on this comment. Sorry for taking up all this space. :-|

    nice pix of the ballpark that is home of the soon-to-be national league west champs (again)!

    sorry, that was troll. my apologies to dodger and padre fans!

    you could go old-school and get a film camera with an ultra wide lens. a mid- to late-70's nikon f2 + a 15mm lens[1] would get you a very nice shot. or even a medium-format fuji[2 camera].
