A couple of images of Lake Wakatipu. One is made from a stich of 4 photos, the other is made from 5 photos. Used the Hugin panoramic creator, it's free and it works really well although I'm still learning to use it and the settings etc. It makes life pretty easy, just select all the files and hit "go"... well you have to hit the 3 go buttons but that's alright.

Very nice! Were these shot with a tripod?
Nope, just hand held. The shutter was relatively fast on most shots so there wasn't too much movement, as for lining things up, I turned on the visual grid lines so I managed to get the horizon horizontal on all shots and I managed to take the shots with 50% overlap from each other - so actually 100% overlap in total. I used exposure lock on what I thought was the average lighting of the entire image.

I'm still working on the technique but that's as far as I've gotten so far. I've gotten it easy enough for me now that I don't really care for the built-in pano's that the sony's and some others have anymore.
