The floodgates are open. It seems I'm not the only one with a long-time interest in combining images!
Panos naturally lend themselves to slightly more care or thought about the subject, so it's not surprising that the average pano might be considered more dramatic or better executed than the typical single shot. Still, the level of expertise shown here is truly striking.
If we can make this thread a clearing house of top quality panoramic imaging, along with the basics of "how-to", software, and gear, I think this could be a valuable resource (and outlet) for photographers.
There are already too many great shots to compliment each author, but special thanks to sebboh, rosti, bifurcator, and thrice. Really awe-inspiring work.
As I said at the beginning, loosely termed, any equipment used for pano is "Alt" -- I'd like to leave it open to all types of gear, even if that means a matching manufacturer body/lens combos, since the result is "out of the ordinary" useage, which is what "Alternative" really stands for.
Thanks so much for your contributions!
