This is my first attempt at making a panoramic photo. I had just learned that it could be done with photo-stitching a couple days prior, and yesterday I was heading off to a party on a farm in Xenia, Ohio and debating whether or not to bring my camera.
It was a good idea. Around 8:40 I saw a magnificent sunset and got six decent photos a short distance apart.
I didn't know anything about panoramics, but I got home and got to work. I used Hugin, Panotools, and Enblend to stitch and blend these all together. The photos were taken on a 2 MP camera without a tripod or any manual exposure control, so artifacts are present, but I am quite impressed with everything.
My apologies for posting a 2764-pixel-wide image, but I think it's necessary for the full detail... and despite the extensive modifications to it, I think it belongs here rather than photomanipulation because of the nature of the modifications.
