This is my first pano; it was windy this morning on the lakefront and I was in a hurry to get over to the beach before sunrise. The good light sure doesn't last long and I didn't want to miss it; that should explain why it's curved. I guess one must also go on a weeknight for a shot like this when more buildings are lit up and there is a reflection

Very nice, I like it a lot. How many pictures did you use to make it?

Thanks, 4 shots. Next time I will make sure to rotate the camera on the tripod to check for level before taking the first shot.

Other than the curve, very, very nice. What'd you use for stitching?

(I'm going to guess CS3 or CS4? In my experience, if you give CS3/4 come sloping shots, it will stitch a sloped pano...)

The POV you have there would make a fantastic Day/Night Pano. Hang out for a while and shoot the left half from 2 to 4pm and the right half from dusk to night.

Thanks everyone, yes CS3; is there a stitching program that also straightens the shots or could one straighten them before stitching?

Thank's - No more pano's. The rest of the morning was spent taking some pre sunrise shots at the beach and after that trying to catch a seagul in flight. Only processed one HDR that I posted in the HDR section from the beach house at North Avenue beach.

Thanks everyone. I will return and shoot this over one of these days with a zoom lens and hopefully at a time when the lights from the buildings are reflecting in the lake. I still don't know if some of the lights were off due to it being the weekend or if the lake was just to turbulent from the wind.
