Thank you :) It’s too bad it was so out of focus, but I thought it was still worth the stitch.

I use the software PTGui, Pano2VR and a lot of Photoshop :) For the pictures, when I can use a tripod, I usually take 6 images with a fisheye lens – 4 around, 1 up & 1 down. This particular picture was handheld (as are most of my travel pictures), so it was only 4 pictures around. But if you don’t mind not taking the top and bottom of your photos, you can make some very nice cylindrical panoramas in about 9 shots with any camera. Good luck! :)
