Had a bus ride out to the beautiful city of Lucca whilst on holiday in Pisa, and came upon this large oval shaped piazza.

Took 5 images in vertical format, each at 1/80 sec, F13, 18mm, and joined them all together using Photomerge Panorama in Elements 6, to give a final image of almost 180 degrees. Tried this effect before using Arcsoft Panorama Maker, but this is the first time using the Elements 6 version, and I was quite impressed with the result, considering that some of the verticals in the original images converge slightly.

Best viewed large if you have the time!

The panorama works well in the larger file . For a first attempt at stitchinh you have done a great job .The sky is interesting and there is plenty of detail in those old buildings .

I am a real sucker for pan images and this one does not disappoint! You have captured the piazza really well and the blending has worked a treat!

Great work
