Donna Hostick @dhostick at 365 Project challenged me for Get Pushed Week 10 to a panorama - "Victoria's a beautiful city set in a beautiful part of the country, so I want to see more as it's been a while since my last visit."
This is my absolutely final response. Promise.

Yesterday, I shot a single frame panorama, and cropped it off this generous 24mp Nikon D600. But, I didn't think that really *challenged* me, seeing as it was a zoom range I am extremely familar with.

So, I stepped it up a notch, and found a far more forgiving Panorama software package that could deal with a non-level tripod: Autopano Giga.
I shot 9 horizontal images fully wide at 28mm ISO 800 f/22 for 25 seconds/frame using a B+W 77mm circular polarizer. RAW files converted with Nikon ViewNX 2 output to TIFF. Coarse exposure adjustments made in Lightroom 4, then merged in Autopano Giga.

These shots are out of my shiny new Nikon 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 FX lens that I bought yesterday to replace my beloved 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 DX lens.
I'm glad to say this lens outperforms its predecessor with flying colours, especially in low light on this full frame D600.

Panoramas don't resize well, so I uploaded the full resolution version of this panoramic image to Flikr. At first, it was too wide. Quick answer: megapixels should be less than 384 million pixels (length x width x 3 channels), so I found that a generous estimate of 4600 pixels high gives me an comfortable 28000 pixels long side. Export from Lightroom into Flikr then went smoothly.
