    These things are worse than multi-me shots!! They're addictive, annoying and grrrrowl!

    This is about the best I could come up with. Spot the mistakes!

    Thanks for looking!

    What happened with the far right wall/ceiling? Is this spliced together or wide angle?

    I noticed that your monitor is larger than your tv. I liked my dell so much that I use it to watch tv over as well as for the computer.--ditto the curtain rail and ceiling.--Lenny

    It certainly is! I don't watch TV really, it's only there to play back the DVD's and to play Tiger Woods on!! :)

    It was about eleven exposures with my 20D using a 28mm lens mounted with the camera vertical. There are a bunch of things to consider when doing a pano:

    The exposure must remain constant, so take bracket reading first from several areas, and note them on a scrap of paper and pick the average and set exposure manually.

    Depth of field must be maximum - in this case f28 or so I think.

    Auto focus won't help, so focus in the same manner as a hyperfocal scene i.e. 1/3 of the way to the furthest object. It is damn difficult to focus an auto-focus lens manually under artificial lighting.

    Auto WB will screw things up, set it manually to whatever.

    The files will be LARGE, so dumb your camera down to minimum quality, or the pano can go over 1Gb and knacker your software out of memory.

    Overlap should be about 1/5 of the image. Too little is bad, too much is bad.

    Vertical camera plane is more difficult than horizontal.

    Any defects in the image quality at the edges will be vastly magnified.

    Don't bother trying this indoors - it's damn difficult and frustrating.

    Photoshop is pretty good, but leave each of the scenes as a different layer. I gave up on PS and used panorama factory, which is better, but couldn't get rid of the errors around the window.

    It is a nightmare not jogging the camera. Set the ISO to your camera's best value, say 100 which lengthens the exposure and makes the vibrations less.

    Avoid having the TV on as it will come out crap looking.

    Make sure there's something better on your monitor than I did. :)

    Have patience.

    Rob...nice furniture! Nice flat.

    I noticed the window right away, but everyone else did as well :)

    I also like the juxtaposition (SP) of the seemingly rotary telephone next to the flat-screen monitor :)

    Good job! I really want to try one of these at the pub...but it's way too dark...then again, that could prove interesting with all the drunks blurred!!
