I took 14 photographs from the rim of the Palisades.
I used Photoshop to stitch them together. This took a couple hours of time, and required some "voo-doo" to prevent the fish-eye effect caused by taking a panorama from a central spot.
The first voo-doo was that each snapshot was taken 10 steps away from the previous one - thus minimizing the effect from the start.
Then, I placed the images from the center out, and performed perspective adjustments to shift each one slightly. Only about half of each image was kept in each iteration. There is one place I chose to fudge to correct an error rather than redo a lot of work to make it "right" - 10 points to who ever can find the error.
Then, because as the the images are skewed as we go out from the center to prevent fish-eye, we actually shorten (lose) image data from the top or the bottom making the final image thinner. I chose to keep the river side of the image and crop out the sky. So, I recreated the sky where it didn't really exist so the image would not be so thin.
There are many errors in the image. There are a couple buttes that are duplicated, one severe landscape shift, fake sky, lighting shifts and such. It was intended to be pretty and representative of Miles City, but I wouldn't dare use it for geo-positioning. I only spent a couple hours on the whole thing.
Thanks for the kudos though, I appreciate it.
