I have been shooting quite a few panoramas lately, including the one above and the one at the bottom of this post. I have been getting pretty good results shooting handheld, by and large, but I’m starting to feel the need for a panorama head for my tripod.

The way things are going, it’s going to be quite a while before I can afford a pano head but, in the meantime, there’s still hand-held. And shooting everything twice….
