More Fun with Panoramas

Last weekend I went to Boston, and took a few snapshots of Boston harbor.  While these are another great example of how good the iPhone 4 camera is, that’s not the focus of this post.

There is something amiss with these panoramas.  I didn’t spot the problems right away, but as I worked with them, it became obvious.  And the reason for the problem is also obvious: the stitching isn’t perfect if all the elements in the picture don’t line up exactly right.  This is especially true for subjects in the foreground, which move about more as you change positions for each photo.

Contacting me in Europe

This time next week, I’ll be getting ready to leave for Spain (with a brief stopover in England) for a week.

Because mobile phone roaming charges are evil, I’m not going to have my usual constant connection to the interwebz via my iPhone.  If you need to get a hold of me urgently, send me a text message.  (If you don’t know my mobile number, get in touch with me and I’ll be happy to give it to you.)  Please only use this for urgent purposes though – while regular text message charges are already daylight robbery, roaming text message charges are even more obscene.

For everything else, feel free to use Twitter/Email/etc.  I will have WiFi access at my hotels, so at the very least I’ll be able to catch up on communications once or twice a day.

I’ll be in England 3/2 and part of 3/3, then in Spain for the rest of the time.  England is +5 hours from EST, and Spain is +6 hours from EST.

Did I forget anything?  Feel free to leave a comment.  Thanks!
