Here are three panoramas of the ones I took this Saturday. Drove along the old Highway 1 and stopped first at a place I always passed by, thinking I should .... and I finally did. Light was right in the early morning .. as usual, clicking on the image will get you the full size one (well, a sort of full size one, original being much larger)

So I drove on to the much neglected campground (and Buffalo Paddock - have not seen one Buffalo there in all my visits); tried a 7 image panorama there, but got very frustrated with the effort. Have not developed that one yet. But in the meantime, here is

From the Stoney Indian Reserve I took a drive through Canmore, and then took the Spray Lakes Trail to get into the Peter Lougheed Park in the Kananskis. The larch were turning, but they were on the wrong side of the light ... grrrr; however, looking at the side lit by the afternoon sun I had to stop and shoot these majestic mountains ...

Very nice panos!!! I like the third one the best. The first one is a little bubbled (or warped) in the middle

I love #1 and #3.
Can I ask, are these stitched images? If that is the case, how many you used and which software was used to stitch?

Yes, they are all stitched images. All shot with the same exposure. I used Photoshop to stitch them together. Sometimes I like to use PTGui, especially if I have HDR images to stitch.
#1 = 8 images
#2 = 4 images
#3 = 6 images ; none of them were HDR. I shot two more images, one with 24 sets of 7 different exposure images, and one with 27 sets of 5 different exposure images. The latter two are giving me a headache, since I was not able to perfectly level the tripod (had to eyeball it, since I forgot my bubble level). Once I have them figured out, I will put them on Flickr as well, and possibly here.

Some very lovely work, (as usual), Matt, and I also vote for that third one with the depth, and that amazing sky.

Yet again some lovely panoroma. Look like you have "got the bug" for these. Looking forward to the HDR pano later.

You are definitely the master of the pano. Well done.
