Stitched Up!

King's Cascade-Edit
The Kimberley coast is such a huge area that it is sometimes difficult to convey the scene in front of you in one frame. I can well understand why a lot of photographers use panoramic cameras or these days stitching to capture what the see in front of them!
As this seems to be the thing at the moment I thought I may as well have a crack at it as well.
Bear in mind that the only stitching software i have at the moment is a Canon bundled software called Photostitch which is barely adequate for the job.
With trepidation i fed some files that I had shot specifically into the application just to try it out. My laptop groaned and mumbled at all the work i had thrown at it and finally threw out an image. I was surprised at how well it had done and with a little tidying up in Lightroom and Elements this is the result.
Waddya reckon Christian, good enough to go in your gallery?
Stop laughing and answer me!
Ok, so I have a way to go and PtGui looks like a good investment, but you gotta start somewhere.
