thnks for the tips prospero. as i was catching up on all the pages in this thread i came across a bunch of ur italy panorams. i was just there 2 weeks ago visiting the lady who is studying abroad in florence for the semester. lots of familiar sites.

The pic of the piazza by St. Peter's is really long. had to shrink it down for this. got like 2 days with zero color in the sky. sucky. still pretty though. these are my first few panorams.
