    The photo below if the view we had when camping at Victoria BC.
    This was stitched together using 16 photos.
    It was a beautiful day and lots of people were out walking along the
    river, Victoria is one of my favorite cities.

    It might be good to let people know that this is a direct link to a 12.75MB
    image file...
    For many folks, it will be a lesson in frustration.

    I was in Victoria this Summer.
    Beautiful city!

    So that's camping on an island? Looks pretty urban. It's possible to
    camp on Angel Island in San Francisco Bay, I guess that's sort of similar.

    Scroll down & click large instead of original (though that's quite
    tiny). Something in between would be nice! Here's a 14 frame pano I did
    last week:

    VERY beautiful place. I hope I am able to visit it again someday.

    Well, the island is over 400 miles LONG...

    England is an island, too.

    I live in Victoria BC. This beautiful pano (thanks Scott :) was taken
    from the West Bay Walkway,
    not far from my place. It is one of my favorite place to take a stroll
    and admire the views.
    You all must visit when the flowers are blooming in the spring, it is
    not called the 'Garden City' for nothing.

    Anabella M.'s better to have loved and lost
    than to have never seen "Lost in Space"!

    As is Australia. ;-)

    I can, personally vouch for that, and a visit to nearby Butchart Gardens
    is VERY much worth the time and money!

    Well actually, no. Neither is. Great Britain is an island;
    Australia is considered a land mass or continent. I'm adrift. Topic
    is too. ;-)

    Australia is surrounded by water so that even though it is a continent it
    is also an island.

    The pano was taken at the West Bay Marina, which is right at the end of
    the walk way. They have a small campground at the marina, we had a spot
    that looked right out at the city, see photo.
    There is an amazing amount of activity in this little bay, it was great
    fun to watch.

    We got to two of the gardens, they are indeed wonderful.

    Nice picture. What program did you use to stitch it?

    I used PTGui, they have a new version which is working much better then
    the old one.

    Beautiful pano - and it could be my aging eyes, but some buildings seem
    to a have different lean...did you do any perspective correction prior
    to stitching??

    Scott W Guest

    I did not do any perspective correction before stitching. With that
    many photos stitched together they tend to wonder in angle just a bit.
    I an reduce this by having more overlap but I took these with little

    I found the picture quite extraordinary, but probably would have cropped
    the rocks on the right.
    I have done limited experimentation with panos, but have always enjoyed
    making them, even in old 'film days'.

    What I really wished was that I took just a few more photos going to
    the right, the rocks on the right are really a small island that was
    just very close to the campground. People would go there just to
    expolor to walk their dogs. Birds seemed to like the island a lot as

    Some time ago I did one of the town we live in
    A much much smaller town then victoria, but still a very nice place.

    Now that I have both better cameras and better stitching software I am
    to have to go back and redo this one.

  19. Er, every continent is surrounded by water, some of it in a rather fixed
    state in terms of human existence. In geological time, it's pretty

    Surrounded implies 100%. By your definition the (pre-Panama
    Canal) American land mass would be considered a single continent. The
    water division separating Europe and Asia is pretty tenuous. And
    insignificant, compared to an ocean. Pre-Suez Canal, it appears that
    you could also walk from Moscow to Johannesburg.
