I'm loving these pictures! I can never get enough of landscape and tree shots. I like to use them --either to copy or for inspiration-- in my paintings ...any objections? :) Please submit more!

The best part of visiting Kruger is being absorbed into the landscape.

In case you missed it in my trip report!

Thanks to DQ for pointing out how to do these panoramas. After several useful tips, I think I have actually succeeded (with a little help from CS4!). One minor bit of alignment problem in the right side bridge rail, but otherwise amazing what you can do.

Yep! That's the way! 8)

CS4... That's a lot of work!
Try the little program called autostitch (www.autostitch.net). You have to adjust a few settings before you begin (each time! :( ) but it works like a charm, and leaves the corners straighter. I wrote a little tutorial, guess its in the photography section, but a search on autostitch with me as author should pop it up in no time.
The program is free.
