Thai Pavilion from Olbrich Botanical Gardens, Madison WI. Handheld 4 shot vertical panorama, taken with D80, 17-55mm dx at 33mm.

My technique with these is compose at 17mm, hold AE lock, zoom out to 55mm, turn 90 degrees, and start shooting. It's all very high tech. If I'm feeling really crazy, I might try some exposure bracketing and create a HDR.

Processed with the free program Hugin on the full automatic settings; sharpened and color tweaked in Aperture (resulting file is an 89MB TIFF 5612x4153px in size). I've included some full size crops to show the detail.

Slight risk of ghost foot with this technique Smile
