Ok, I will. I like this one. Others in this thread are great also.
Thanks, that one was tricky, i was using a post as my tripod cause I left mine @ home *doh!*. As far as getting the color to match, just play in ps for a bit (i use a diff program, but the concept is the same). The stitching program I use tends not to color correct so I try to match them 1st.
To give Ran an idea of how many pictures to use, #1 I used 8-9 photos, #2 I used 3 photos, and in #3 I used 8 (you can count the jet car 8 times, lol). I'd say have your photos overlap by about 1/4 to 1/3 allow smooth coverage. Start at one end, and pick a reference point (say a rock, tree, post, something), and keep that reference point in the next pic. Keep repeating this until you have the whole span that you want as a shot. This makes stitching soooo much easier.
Also, more is not always better, the more you try to stitch together, the more "bending" you have. I'm still new at this, so I'm not sure what could fix this. The biggest pan that I've done that looked good was #1 in my 3. It about 200-250 degress of pan.
Great shots everyone!
