    Hi,

    Here is a panorama photo composed of 3 pictures perfectly combined:

    Is that the curve of the earth or a distortion caused by using a wide lens?

    Incredible, with all the great photos I've seen on this forum, I'm going to have to start using a thesaurus to find new adjectives.

    I'll start with these: Astounding and Stunning

    Where was the picture taken?

    The lens used for this photo was a 24-90mm pentax zoom. It is not a fisheye lens, so the curve is just natural. The picture was taken during my vacation in Austria.

    I have a fisheye picture if you want to see one, though. I can either post it here later, or you can see it now at: http://www.themotec.com/Images/A190_040630_16p_ex_LZ17.jpg

    Its a pretty big picture, optimized for cable, dsl, or satelite internet.

    I'm guessing it's somewhat of an optical illusion caused by the stitching of the panorama frame. Whenever I've done panos I usually come out with this type of thing too.

    I tend to agree with Shark that this is a stitching curve. The long cloud in the picture has a matching curve in it and that would just be too freaky if it was real. Also we're not looking at the horizon so there really is no chance of seeing curvature unless you're really really really high up.
    I suffered from curving pano's for a while but have finally worked them out.
    What stitching program do you use? I use panorama factory (off the web).

    This photo was put together with Adobe photoshop cs, probably the best program to do it with.
