    This is the famous watertower, which has a whole shopping area (probably the most posh in Illinois) named after it.

    This building has quite a history behind it, but I didn't think to take a photo of the plaques. :(

    This was stitched together with three shots; kind of a vertical panorama. The Canon software only does horizontal panoramas, so I had to turn the pix on their sides first. (the pix were taken with my Pentax K100D, the software came with my Canon Elph.)

    I merged them, then rotated it back vertical. it is pretty distorted in areas, but the watertower itself looks OK! I would have never gotten this in one shot without a much more expensive wide angle lens.

    I see what you mean about the distortion.I had that same program but lost it:er: ..it worked pretty well.to my eye the only distortion I see is on the first third of the photo on the collums and the skyscraper.It is a beautifal building though.:thumbup:

    Would you mind making me a copy of that disc so I can use my photostitch again

    I use the software too from time to time. I've found that it works best with long focal length shots so the image doesn't become distorted.
