The North Cape at Midnight
Its not panoramic but its one of my favourites, Tres Mares, Northern Spain
I think the distortion in this one is due to barrel distortion in the lens. Does overlapping adjoining images by 50% reduce this?
Again, these are great photos!
I found this link that leads to many article on Panoramas and QTVR's.
One of the biggest concerns is how you shoot the segments. There are panoramic/QTVR tripod heads that allow you to rotate the camera's film plane on the nodal point.
Link to How to find your camera's nodal point.
This is pretty extreme for what most want to do, but if you get closer to getting better shots up front it will help in the stitching process.
Now all you need to do is go interactive with 360 QTVR panos.
I found a few here.
Another one here.
The more advanced ones you can zoom in and look up and down.
I think it's important to keep the camera as level as possible
when making panoramic shots. By overlapping the image, more
points are available to line the image up and minimize any
distortion introduced by the lens. I've had good luck with
images overlapped by 25-30 percent.
Couple of other points. Using a wide angle lens can result in
distortion at the edges. If you look to the left side, you'll see
tall buildings leaning. Also, make sure the exposure is consistent
between images in the set.
Look towards the left side of the bridge and you can clearly see
the seam created between the two images (this is three images)
and the difference in exposure.

Some beautiful shots!
OK...some of my recent panoramas...
(dial up folks are gonna hate me)
Monitor pass (south of Tahoe)
just another Forest road just before Monitor Pass
Beartooth pass, looking south.
And possibly my favorite...(though its not that well stitched)
Boy, this is definetly a thread the monitorily challenged as
well as the dialup users will hate some of you for too :)
Lot's of very nice pictures.
Scott, where was the bottom picture taken (Railroad)?
That last shot was taken out north/northwest of Pyramid Lake (north/northeast of Reno, NV) on route 33 (Sand Pass Rd. - the road that 445 becomes past the lake), SW of Gerlach, NV. I didn't want to go that far and so had turned around the tracks trying to figure out where the hell I was. The photo is of the view south.
About that Nevada "lost" shot...I actually have enough shots to almost make it a 270º view, but like this scope best.
bad stitch good place.
moab. bartletts wash.
Giles, superb photography, but don't forget glorious Devon!
(I'm an ex Torquay boy.. a long way from home!):):
Not enough zoom and not enough overlap between adjacent shots.
Also, there are certain stitching software adjustmants to negate this effect.
Here's a queer one taken at home, it's a panorama squished up x 3.
You've taken some *beautiful* shots. What kind of camera?
I love the 360 degree view of your bike,,,how did you do that just walk around it
Do you work for Cal Trans :huh or you just have a really tall bike
easy as pie ricky. just the right place and a digicam with panorama feature.
