photostitch

I've had a Canon Powershot SD550 digital camera for over two years now. It takes 7.1 megapixel photos and so far has been a decent "point and shoot". The feature I dislike most, however, is the flash, which is super intense and washes out just about anything it's pointed at. Without the flash, indoor pictures almost always turn out blurry.

This camera's got a bunch of bells and whistles that I never use. One of these is PhotoStitch. It's a software package designed to combine several overlapping photographs into one large photograph. On Saturday, Kiri , Adalyn and I drove to the top of South Mountain Park. The view was incredible so I thought I'd try out the PhotoStitch feature. The picture quality isn't great and some of the "stitched" areas are pretty obvious, but the overall effect is pretty cool. Check it out below:

Hey, thanks for the comment. It's always nice to have a fan.
I bookmarked your blog. Nice work, by the way. you have a talent for taking good pictures. By good I mean beautiful AND interesting. I'm still getting the hang of this whole blog thing. I think I like it. So we'll see how it fits into my life.

Aaron I think it is AWESOME that you have a site, a very cool site by the way. I love your pictures, I have this secret desire to dabble in amature photography. I also have a cannon and can relate to your lamenting.
