A view looking south over the beautiful sandy beach, from the small jetty. But what did I do wrong to get the curve and cracks in the stitching?

I think there are two issues here. First, there
are the splits in the bottom of the image. I
believe the existence of splits is caused by
insufficient horizontal overlap which means the
stitcher has been unable to identify matching
features, and this in turn has caused the
right-hand end of the pano to 'flick up'.
Have a look at the original images to see how much
overlap there is - the stitcher notes report the
overlap is a little as 0.7%. All sorts of mad
things happen when there is insufficient overlap
for the gigapan stitcher. Eg www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=
20116.The second issue is the sweeping curve
of the pano. I don't know what causes this but
I have noticed it in some very wide panos - i.e.
ones shot with a very small step size. It could be
a bug in the stitcher, or it could be that in
order to get the projection correct for viewing in
Google Earth, all panoramas are slightly curved
like this. It is only when the pano is very large
that we can actually see it. I have asked the
stitcher team about this but I have yet to hear
back. Here is one of my recent panos with the same
24064. And here is another with it in spades:

similar problems (click on 'Most Popular'
then click on 'sort by size' - there is at
least one with splits like yours). HTH
