Sunset at the Giants Causeway last week.

5 portrait images @16mm on a panoramic head stitched in CS5.

3 stop Hard Lee ND Grad.

I tried a similar stitch / image about 18 months ago, before I had a panoramic head, and the software couldn't handle the parallax error on the hexagons in the foreground. The Hexagons were a really important bit of the composition. After that failure I found a cheap second hand panoramic head on ebay for about 70 (instead of the usual 350).

It was the first time I had managed to take a panoramic head back to the causeway and it managed fine. The moving water was a challenge but I took each image at the same time as a new wave crashed. Wish I had had a 3 stop ND to slow the water more to make the stitching easier. That said CS5 seemed to cope.

Still undecided about the ideal focal length for stitching. 16mm distorts the foreground, Some of the best landscape panoramas i've seen are stitched from 35mm-50mm focal length images.

I voted for the previous image and it occurred to me later that you could have uploaded a 2000 wide version in the pano gallery (tick a box at the bottom when uploading). Not sure whether this would fit as it is a bit deeper....still a cracking image though Wink
