    That's a darned good job of steady hands and stitching, then. But for a little odd shading in the sky, it looks like you used a panorama camera.

    i can see the lines myself in the picture. im not sure if other people can but it bothers me when i stitch a picture together i can still see the lines even after so much blending.

    i think its just because i know where they are. i dunno. something i need to overcome.. or get a wide angle lens.

    I can too, although they are far less noticable than anything I can do. You did an excellent job merging the images.

    good photography too. I'm afraid any pics i have on my computer are pretty craptacular :P

    The odd shading I was talking about seems to be the top left quadrant of your shots. What camera are you using? Perhaps a better lens would help this..

    What are the spec s on the lens you are using ? What settings were you using ? It looks somewhat like vignetting, although with the overlapped images it could be an artifact of the blending. If it is present on the single frames, try stopping the lens down a stop or two and see if it goes away. If it does, then it is the design of the lens (particularly true for long zoom telephotos) and you can work around it by stopping down to some extent. The other thing that can cause that is a lens hood or similar obstruction near the lens face.
