For the vast majority of my time playing with photography, I've been "into" panoramic photos.
Only having had P&S's I've always simply created a panoramic shot by using photostitch (which I originally got free with a scanner, not with a camera).
Most of the time the results just "work", that is that they seem "natural to the eyes" if you know what I mean, and are pleasant enough to look at. But sometimes they just don't work, they don't have that comfortable feel. I'm kind of suspecting it might be when capturing too wide an expanse, but not really sure. Is there an ideal "width" of scene to a panoramic shot?
