When I have precious little else to do I frequently end up chopping together photos. Techically, they should be referred to as "images created using Adobe® Photoshop® software", but I reckon Adobe lost that particular battle a long time ago.

Either way, these are some of the fruits of my labours. Click them to see the full-resolution version, if I've made it available. I will not be held responsible for any nightmares caused by the stranger ones...

Stitched Panoramas

Quick word of warning - the full versions of these are frequently huge. Not surprising, really, as they're several reasonably high-res photos jammed together into one big image. Either way, don't click on the photos if you're on dialup unless you fancy a nice long wait.

Picnic Panorama
Every year, St Ebbe's church in Oxford does a big picnic for all its varied congregations. As you can see from this picture, that's quite a lot of people.

Diplodocus skeleton
I took this one ages ago, at London's Natural History Museum. This Diplodocus skeleton takes up most of the main entrance hall, which makes it a touch difficult to photograph from the upstairs galleries. See if you can spot the stitching error.

House in France
Much more recently now, this is a house in France. Nothing special there, but I bet its owner will be surprised to see it make an appearance here.

Scarborough Panorama
Saving what I think is the best until last, this is the town of Scarborough, seen from its castle. Scarborough has bizarre weather patterns; over on the left of the picture you can see the remains of the cloud that had blanketed the entire town only ten minutes before this photo was taken.

Put Me In The Frame

Having seen what I tend to do to my subjects with Photoshop, most people are rather reluctant to let me photograph them nowadays. Not a problem when your camera has a self-timer.

Lastly, I've been experimenting recently with red-cyan anaglyph photos. If you can get hold of a pair of red-cyan glasses (or just bits of red and bluish cellophane) then you should be able to see a 3D effect in these photos. (Red lens on the left eye.)
