One of the techniques I've been working with a lot lately is combining multiple photographs to create panoramic images. The advantage of working this way is that you get enormous images with incredible resolution. The 360-degree panoramas can be printed at 18" x 155" with amazing clarity — that's 1-1/2 feet by 13 feet!

Panoramic prints are all special order items. I can print up to 12" tall by 40" wide in-house. Larger dimensions will have to be sent out to a service bureau, resulting in slightly longer production delays.

Click on any of the thumbnail images below to see a larger version. But note that these are, by their very nature, large images which may take a long time to load on slower connections and most of them will require quite a bit of horizontal scrolling: They're wide!
