Hi Steve - that's a good stitch result if you ask me. I like the atmosphere you have captured. My only niggle is that the horizon seems to be sloping to the left?

Yes but look at the tree.

I think the horizon looks like that because of the mountains.

I suspect that's the effect from stitching 3 wide-angle shots. What focal length did you use? I find that anything wider than 25mm (50mm equiv in 35mm) can give distortion - especially on close-up items as this tree was.

Yes but look at the tree.

I think the horizon looks like that because of the mountains.

Trees are universally perfectly perpendicular? :)

The more I look at it the more I'm convinced the horizon is sloping to the left.

I started to look around on the internet for photos from this location.
I found this. http://photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=7408136

I know he had better weather. but I think you all win your point and I feel so unworthy.

Ive got to make a point to go back to this spot again I know I can do better.

Thank you for your comments.

That's much better - it is now a really good atmospheric shot. Pity about the blown leaves in the centre - I might be inclined to clone them out.
