Hey all. While I was at Cedar Point recently, I took a series of Raptor photos and used Adobe Photoshop's Photomerge to put them all together in one big image. I thought it turned out pretty cool, so I'd show all of you. Let me know what you think.

WOW! That looks AWESOME! Great job! I have a bunch of picture and video editing software and I have to figure out how to do stuff like that.
Great work! :)

Excellent shot. Love the color, and the one family that you can see twice. I have a few of these posted on my website
. I've always liked them, they give an interesting perspective of parks. You may want to next time try to shot the ride so that a train is in the picture, it gives the ride some life.

Thanks for the advice. I'll try to remember that. My next try will probably be Georgia Scorcher. That, too, is impossible to get in one view.

I call it MidwayVision. I have it scattered throughout PointBuzz. There's a lot more that I've taken that I haven't had time to stitch (including a cool view from Space Spiral that I hope to get up some day).

I love panoramic photography. Someday maybe I'll be able to afford the really nice tripod equipment.

Lol, that Family in there 'twice', is actually there 3 times, if you look ;).
Very cool pic. I love things like that, I admire photography. I miss processing film/printing pictures all day. *sigh* Oh well, I didn't get paid to sit on my butt then. Oh, wait. Yes I did. Nevermind.
I just didn't get paid this much.

Some amazing photos, guys! And I agree, it does give you a different perspective of a park.
That Raptor photo is awesome, especially with the sun beam on the far right. :-)

Neat picture. I like doing these.
Paint Shop Photo Album is a good app that does panoramas. Link
Also if you have a Canon digicam, it should have come with software to do it as well.

Panoramas are fun. Keep at it and you'll get better at getting the pics to connect seamlessly.

Great Job. I tried this once and ended up with several places that would cause a major derailment.
I like the floating head near the bottom right hand corner of the pic.

Haha, yeah, there are two floating heads total, but the one you're speaking of is the most obvious.

Great pic! Very cool.
I had to really zoom in to see all the details everyone is talking about. Reminds me of those puzzles where you're supposed to find the hidden items in the picture. It makes the picture more fun to check out. I also saw the grey haired guy in the cream colored shirt 3 times-- towards the center he's in profile and to the right he has his back to the camera.
The floating head in the center of the pic is actually 2 heads-- a guy and a girl. What makes it even better is the group of people just to their right with this look of bewilderment on their faces like they're looking at these two heads. Priceless!
Keep up the good work-- and make sure you share them with us.
