Here's my first attempt. 9-shot stitch using ICE, taken with my 50/1.4, and only from about 6 feet away. I tried to position my camera on the tripod so that my sensor was where I figured the center of the pivoting point was and then used the grid overlay in live view to pinpoint where to take the pictures. I also used the electronic level to help me keep the distortion down as much as possible. I know it doesn't have the 3D effect as most of the shots in here but at least I know I can successfully pull it off once I take it outside. Lots of great pictures in this thread...can't wait to contribute a meaningful one myself!
