    That's a fine image of your great facility. Applause! As a humble KC Royal fan I have never seen it in person, only as shown on TV game broadcasts. The small screen does not do it justice. How many images went into this? Were the originals horizontals or verticals? I do not spot any blurred fans in your crowd. Surely some of them must have moved between camera clicks. Or was this done with a quick motor drive? Apparently the Autostitch process did not have to fuse any moving figures into a blur? I see that your original size is quite large, which should make a good print if you choose.

    I am way past the ten-year-old pooter wizard stage. Would you be inclined to answer some technical questions about why I cannot get high reso results like yours?

    Opening day or why were there so many people there?

    rajahdajah - thanks for the comment. With autotstitch this image is pretty easy to do. Just take the original shots (I did this as verticals) with a little overlap (so autostitch can do its magic) but as little as possible to avoid the fusing of moving figures as you describe. There were some directly in front of me here, but I cropped these out of the final image.

    The size of the image is dependent on the size of the source files. I use the maximum 6mp my camera offers and then reduce accordingly. You just need to change the size setting to 100% in the autostitch program (found under 'options'). Note that flickr has a 10mb size limit so it makes sense to keep it below that for flickr purposes.

    compujeramey - no idea.

    The crowd might be big because it was their first weekend game of the year? That, or the first time the home crowd could see Ponson pitch. This picture actually makes the Metrodome look kinda cool.

    it gets very, very cold there so it makes sense.
