An incredible view of Houston from University of Houston westward to the heart of the downtown area, especially incredible since there are two pillars not shown in this panorama, but yet the view can almost be considered seamless except that the railing shows where there should be a pillar(s).

The GigaPan Stitcher comes though with flying colors on this one.

The view, taken from the 24th floor and was breathtaking as I took it using my trusty Nikon D70 (soon to be retired) and a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 lens. There is no Photoshop on this panorama, only the GigaPan Stitcher.

    Thanks Kilgore, its just one of those things where you think you have everything all together and ooops, you forgot something, and in this case, I really forgot something; all of Channelview, all of Baytown, all of Pasadena, the ship channel, Deer Park Industries and even LaPorte.

    This is a superb shot and a superb gigapan. But anyone who likes this should check out www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id= 30986 which is *larger* version of the same view.
