    Oooooh, nice one. Would 1280×854 be possible? Wide-screen format for my old TiBook…

    Cool, thank you for the alternate size — it’s gone into my desktop rotation!

    Just out of interest, what gear are you using to capture these panoramas? I’m assuming digital, but the camera must be pretty good since the detail is fantastic.

    You *might* like to consider tweaking the white-balance for night shots — I still shoot slide film so I can’t provide exact details, but it should be possible to get the digital equivalent of a tungsten balance. This would take care of the slightly yellowish cast (which, if memory serves, comes from sodium lighting) and give you cool blues and whites.

    They’re no great shots, but you can see the difference here: http://www.reades.com/photos/London_at_Night-20050820/

    These look like renders to me, or someone has been a busy bee inside photoshop.

    Look at the curb. Last time I checked real life did not have bump mapping. Which is a shame 🙂
