Another shot of this stretch of canal taken from street level. Probably the most picturesque part of the city, but I'd better return to be certain.

Lovely picture, really fun to wonder what's with the perspective.

@mramshaw It's all stitched together from a bunch of separate stills. As close as I could get to replicating the effect of a wide-angled lens, hence the funky perspective =)

Nice job on the stitching, it must be a lot of work.

Also explains the lack of people! The effect works well on your landscapes, here with the cityscapes it's more obvious but again adds some interest value. I'll have to look into Hugin, I have only used it for CA correction so far. Did you correct for barrel distortion, or is that part of why the perspective feels so odd?

@mramshaw Certainly is tricky to assemble some of the bigger compositions. The lack of people can be attributed to the atrocious weather at the time =) The image is corrected for all the factors (inc. barrel). In this case, there's a lot of foreground, so you get that "pulling" factor closest to my standing position hence the perspective. Thanks for commenting =)
