How About Some Panoramas?

You know, I haven't really seen any thing along the subject of panoramas. I would be nice to hear some tips and probably see some of what you amateurs and pros are putting together out there.

Here's something for starters:

The main courtyard within the Forbidden City in Beijing, CN.

I'd recommend leveling your horizon. IMHO it is vitally important to make sure your horizons are dead level in a pano, because the pictures are so wide that even a small deviation is visible- and it throws the eye off.

This is a 4 shot pano of a cliff dwelling in Mesa Verde known as Nordenskjold 16 . You can't get into the site , only see it from across the valley . Images taken by a 5D2 and 100-400 at 400 , plus tripod . iso 400 , f5.6@1/250 . Took the shots just fooling around , intending to stitch them when I got home but never did until about 15min. ago . Stitching done via CS5, this was the first time I tried to do something like this , didn't come out too shabby ...

Haven't had time to shoot in a while, hopefully heading up to the Sierra's sometime soon to grab some cooler panos. In the mean time this is one from a few months ago at Foster Falls, TN

This is a 4 shot pano taken south of Radium, British Columbia. About 20 miles back into the Rocky Mountains.

Taken off the stern of my friends sailing vessel. This is 5 RAW images stitched in CS5. Nikon D300 w/24-70 f/2.8 @ f/5.6 1/1250 sec ISO 200 31mm.

We had sailed from Portland to San Francisco in a fierce spring storm that ripped our mainsail to shreds. When we sailed under the Golden Gate it was calm in the bay and we could relax for the first time in days!

Some very nice photos here. Good thread topic.

Personal opinions on pano: not all locations suit themselves to pano - to my mind, use of pano needs to add grandeur or magnitude that otherwise isn't easily achieved with standard formatting. Second, some panos are a series of poorly exposed photos - which just makes for a poorly exposed pano shot. Exposure and focus are every bit as important in a pano. Last, as someone already pointed out, an even horizon line is really important. I prefer to use a tripod with a two way level mounted.
